WFRN,

In advance of the 25th anniversary of the Family and Medical Leave Act next Monday, Feb. 5, we have created and released fact sheets detailing the demographic case for paid leave in every state. You can find fact sheets for all states at NationalPartnership.org/PaidLeaveMeansMap.

We've also created a landing page for FMLA25 with different ways to take action: NationalPartnership.org/FMLA25.

Please share these on Twitter!

  • Next week, the nation’s first work and family law turns 25. It’s time for the next step. Take action here to advance #paidleave and say what #paidleavemeans NationalPartnership.org/FMLA25. #FMLA25 @NPWF
  • Working families in every state are caught between the demands of job and family – it’s affecting our fight for gender equality. Data here. #FMLA25 #PaidLeaveMeans NationalPartnership.org/PaidLeaveMeansMap @NPWF

Thanks for all you do!

Vicki
