Protect Paid Family Leave Fridays!

Join #PaidLeave4DC call-in days happening EVERY Friday to stop Council’s #AttackonDCPaidLeave

Good news!! The Universal Paid Leave Act received full funding to create the infrastructure to set up the paid leave social insurance program!

Unfortunately, our law is still at a high risk of being repealed and replaced in the next few months, so our work isn’t over yet. We also need to make sure the implementation of the Universal Paid Leave Act starts immediately. We will continue to make calls to elected officials to ask them to protect the Universal Paid Leave Act and fight against all alternative bills. 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.


This week we are calling Chairman Mendelson at (202) 724-8032.

Here's your script:

"Hi, my name is _________ and I live/work in Washington, DC. Chairman Mendelson heard loud and clear from activists and experts on Tuesday that his employer mandate is bad policy and is dangerous for me and my friends and family. He and the Council already passed the right bill. And the confusion with all of these alternative bills is keeping the Universal Paid Leave Act from being implemented - please stop the confusion and let program be developed.

Thank you so much for your time."

You can also ask the staff member to follow up with you by providing your phone number and email address. Remember to thank the staff who you talk to - they work hard and are fielding a lot of our calls!
