SUPPORT PAID PARENTAL LEAVE

Today’s call is about pressing for support for Senate Bill S.337, the FAMILY Act. The bill would entitle all working individuals to 60 days of payment for caregiving services provided, calculated based on the income of the recipients. This would provide relief not only for new parents but also for the thousands of people who care for adult family members. Call your two senators about Senate Bill 27.

  • First, look up whether your Senators cosponsored S.337 here.  

SCRIPT IF THEY HAVE NOT COSPONSORED

Hi! I’m [NAME], a constituent from [ZIP] and would like to know if [SENATOR’S NAME] supports S.337, which supports working families with paid parental leave.  

  • If you get a non-answer: It is a disgrace that the United States does not provide paid parental and caregiving leave, and S 337 is a step in the right direction. When will [SENATOR’S NAME] co-sign Senate bill 27?

Thanks for your hard work answering the phones.
