Recognize FMLA30,
Fight for Paid Leave

Today, we recognize and celebrate the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the nation’s first leave law, enacted February 5, 1993.

It provides up to 12 weeks of job-protected, unpaid leave to care for yourself or a seriously ill family member, to welcome a new child into your life or manage during some military deployments.

what we’re
fighting for

We’re fighting for the building blocks of economic mobility – paid family and medical leave (PFML), earned sick and safe days (ESSD), and childcare. We promote and advocate for fair elections and full access to the ballot – we want to vote, and we want our vote to count. 

We’re organizing in a manner that centers our work with leaders who are more often, women of color, LGBTQ, parents, and caregivers.
