Full show notes: http://bit.ly/2q0rwSw To help us explore the paid leave issue in the district—the legislation as it’s passed, the coalition that came together to fight for it, and what’s coming next—we spoke with Hannah Weilbacher, previously a community organizer with Jews United for Justice who worked on the DC Paid Family Leave Campaign. Call To Action This is our clearest call to action yet: go to the DC Paid Family Leave Campaign website and volunteer. Seriously, they make it so easy for you to contribute however you can—showing up at events, making phone calls, shooting out tweets, or even just talking to your friends about the issue. You can also show your support by signing this petition or sign up directly to make weekly phone calls to targeted council members demanding full funding for program startup costs in the 2018 budget being debated now throughout the month of May. It took a popular movement to get to this point. Now we need to keep the pressure on so that the Council and the Mayor know that we’re watching, and we won’t accept anything less than full implementation of this paid family leave program.
