With the declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic, the need for paid leave is more apparent than ever.  Yet, there is confusion about who is eligible, how to access these benefits, taking time without risking long-term job loss, and what additional protections and benefits are available now.  

Join the California Work & Family Coalition and the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence to learn about your right to paid leave.  Get practice sharing this information with others in need. Stand up for working families and stay connected to our growing movement.

May 5:  Achieving Equity in Paid Leave
Take the next step in building confidence as an effective advocate and community educator.  We will review best practices in paid leave outreach and education, and how to implement them in your communities.  Paid leave for specific communities, such as new immigrant workers, and issues related to public charge will be addressed.  Practice speaking and sharing resources and tools that help workers access paid leave. Participants will also be invited to connect to a statewide network of folks who are also advocating for equitable and accessible PFL practices, and for regular updates and continued support.  (2 CEUs/CERPs) 

Those who complete all 3 sessions will receive our bilingual Paid Family Leave Training Toolkit in Spanish and English. CEUs for RNs and CERPs for IBCLCs will also be available to those who complete all 3 sessions.
