ACT NOW

PAID PARENTAL LEAVE

Paid Family Leave is a social insurance policy that provides paid time off work for parents to care for new additions to their families via birth or adoption. The United States is currently the only industrialized nation without a paid family leave policy, but across the country state legislatures are showing leadership on this issue, with 5 states and Washington, DC passing legislation that requires paid family and leave for workers. The birth or adoption of a child is a critical time of transition for families. Ensuring that new parents are able to take time to recover, bond with their children and establish new family routines is essential for the health of children, families, and communities.

Take Action

Sign The Petition

As your constituent, I’m asking you to pass legislation to provide paid family leave to all workers in North Carolina. The United States is currently the only industrialized nation without a paid family leave policy, but you have the opportunity to show real leadership in North Carolina by supporting this initiative. The birth or adoption of a child is a beautiful and challenging time for any family. We have the opportunity to show what family values really mean by making sure that parents have the time and resources necessary to bond with and care for their new additions. Please support paid family leave policy here in North Carolina.
