As of July 1, 2020, DC workers have finally begun receiving paid leave benefits, and it is time for us to celebrate! So many members of the Under 3 DC community lent time, energy, passion, and creativity to the Paid Family Leave campaign. Join coalition member Jews United for Justice to virtually celebrate the implementation of this important legislation. You will receive call-in instructions via email after you RSVP.
Let’s celebrate everyone who made this multi-year campaign so special and successful. The DC Council passed a precedent-setting Paid Family and Medical Leave Policy in December 2016 that became law in April 2017 and began being administered on July 1, 2020.
Even if you are unable to join the virtual celebration, please share any fond memories, stories, or pictures from the campaign. These memories and photos will be included in a slideshow for this celebration. Have any of your babies grown up since the campaign? We want to see them! A submission form is included within the registration link.
