Our elected leaders are getting started on the 2019 Legislative Session right now. We need to make sure they continue to fight for Oregon families and pass more of the strong policies our state is known for — policies that will help families stay afloat and maintain their economic security.
Today we’re asking our elected leaders to pass a comprehensive paid family and medical leave policy. Whether it’s to welcome a new child, aid a loved one with a serious illness or injury, or get care themselves, almost everyone will need to take time away from work to deal with a family or medical issue. But because Oregon doesn’t have a universal paid family and medical leave policy in place, most of us can’t actually afford to take unpaid time off from work when we need to.
Being able to take time away from work for a family or medical issue will be game-changing for millions of working people. Send your Senator a message today to let them know that paid family and medical leave is high on your priority list.
Sorry, we're not targeting legislators in your district just yet. But, you can still help us pass paid family and medical leave!
