Most Americans agree that family comes first. No matter where you work or what zip code you live in, you should be able to welcome a new child, to care for your mother when she has her knee replaced or to heal from cancer without facing financial disaster.
At some point in our lives, all of us will have a sick partner, an aging parent, a new baby or adopted child, or get sick ourselves. And 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 serious debt. This is why Oregon needs a paid family and medical leave insurance program and why we’re bringing you this special screening of ZERO WEEKS, the fourth documentary by award-winning director, Ky Dickens. Dickens was inspired to make a film about paid leave, after facing financial depletion, emotional turmoil and guilt of having “not enough time,” due to a lack of paid leave, after the birth of her first child.
After the movie, a panel of leaders will share thoughts on what a paid family and medical leave insurance program could mean for Oregon.
Partnering with Family Forward as part of the Time for Oregon campaign for Paid Family & Medical Leave in Oregon .
