Only 17% of the US workforce has access to employer-sponsored paid family leave. Contact your Senators and Representative now! Invite them to sign-on to the bi-partisan FAMILY Act so that everyone can have Paid Leave. Use the below letter or personalize it. Say what the presence or absence of paid leave has meant in your life and why they should champion it. Complete your contact information, make any changes to the letter to make it your own, and click “Send Message.” The letter will automatically be sent in your name to your Senators and Representative. United Methodist Women will keep you informed on the status of the bills.
If you send a letter to your representatives through this page, we will keep you updated on the status of the bill and future advocacy opportunities. There is no need to complete an additional on-line form.

Dear [Decision Maker],
I am a member of United Methodist Women, a national faith-based women's organization working to address the rights and needs of women, youth and children. I urge you to sign on to the FAMILY Act (H.R. 1185/S. 463), a bi-partisan bill which will provide family and medical leave for all. [congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/1185/all-info?r=6]
