Family Act reintroduced in Congress

TAKE ACTION! Thank Representatives Adams, Butterfield & Price for their support of the FAMILY Act!

by the NC Justice Center

Last week, the FAMILY Act was reintroduced in Congress with support from three of our 13 North Carolina Congressional members: Rep. Alma Adams, Rep. G.K. Butterfield, and Rep. David Price.

The FAMILY Act would establish a Family Medical Leave Insurance program that would provide working people with paid family medical leave to recover from childbirth or illness, care for an aging loved one or welcome a newborn or adopted child to the home.

This policy would allow working Americans to be able to choose to be with their families when it matters most. Currently only 12% of working people in the U.S. have access to this type of leave, which means they are often left to choose between a paycheck or taking care of themselves and their families.

We salute Representatives Adams, Butterfield, and Price for standing up for the working people of North Carolina. Will you join us in thanking them with a personal note? Take action below!
