Fund Paid Family Leave Fridays!

Join #PaidLeave4DC call-in days happening EVERY Friday in April and May

The Universal Paid Leave Act has finally become law in the District. In order to make it a reality, though, the infrastructure needed to run the program must be funded.

On Fridays in April, May, and June we make calls to elected officials to ask them to fund Paid Family Leave for DC. Each week we think strategically about who we will call - so stay tuned every Friday - the call script is below!

Please sign up for a regular time to call an elected official, so pick a time that will be relatively consistent for you. Each call takes about 2 minutes. We will also send you a reminder text a few minutes before your scheduled call.

We have many additional budget priorities. Sign up here to make weekly Moral Budget Thursdays calls in April and May. _________________________________________________________________________

This week we are calling DC Council Chairman Phil Mendelson - again! We're on the home stretch of budget season and he needs to hear from us!

Phone number: (202) 724-8032

Here's a sample script when you make your call or leave a message:

"Hi, my name is _________. I am calling to thank Chairman Mendelson for ensuring that Paid Family Leave is fully funded in the DC budget. We are counting on him!
