Stories are important. When we tell them we learn that we are not alone, and we help others to see that, too. As we work to change workplace and public policy to work for today’s families, we want to hear directly from families that are experiencing the lack of paid family and medical leave.

Since taking care of family is non-negotiable, we all need to be able to take time from work without worrying about losing our jobs or going into debt. This is why Oregon needs a paid family and medical leave insurance program that includes partial wage replacement and job protections for extended medical and family leave.
