The Universal Paid Leave Act passed - now let's implement it!

In December 2016, the DC Council voted in favor of paid family and medical leave for all. Within just a few months, the program was already under attack from big business. Thanks to everyone who fought hard throughout 2017 to protect UPLA, DC families will soon have access to paid family and medical leave!

The campaign isn’t over yet: now we need to make sure the District efficiently and effectively implements its paid leave program! Join us as we hold our government accountable and protect the rights we worked so hard to codify into law.

Why #PaidLeave4DC?

No one should be forced to make impossible choices between caring for the people we love and earning the money we need. With a paid family and medical leave program in DC we can improve workplace standards and ensure that families have the financial stability they need when life happens!

Being there when your loved ones need you — or when you need you — is not negotiable!
