A Patient Advocate's View

Paid Family Leave

Wednesday, July 29th

@12:00 p.m.

on the Steps of City Hall



A bill to insure that workers in the city of New York can earn paid sick time will be introduced by Council Member Gale Brewer in August.   At noon on July 29th, she will be joined on the steps of City Hall by other elected officials, low-wage workers, business owners, labor leaders, public health experts, advocates for children, women and the aging, The New York State Paid Family Leave Coalition and A Better Balance to urge the City Council to support this important legislation. Please join us!  

With warnings from federal officials that we could face a worse outbreak of H1N1 flu this fall, the urgency is even greater to act now so that workers can follow the Center for Disease Control’s advice to stay home or keep children home from school if they have flu symptoms.

Momentum is building in support of paid sick time — and with your continued help we can make it happen.

Please let us know you will join us on
