League Joins Letter in Support of Paid Family Leave

The League joined more than 340 organizations representing a range of demographic groups from more than 40 states in sending a letter to Congress urging members to support an inclusive paid family and medical leave policy and to reject alternatives that leave people behind. Specifically, the groups want to make clear that the parental-leave-only plan included in the administration’s FY 2018 budget proposal would do more harm than good and should not be considered a legitimate paid leave plan. Signatories include advocacy groups, direct service organizations and private sector businesses.
