A Thanksgiving Note from Advocates for Public Policy


Hello NYJL Volunteers:

Happy Thanksgiving from the Advocates for Public Policy (APP) committee. Our partner, the New York Paid Family Leave Insurance Campaign, has asked us to help spread the word about paid family leave and continue to build support for this important policy here in New York. As you may remember, APP urged our state elected officials to adopt paid family leave during our spring advocacy day earlier this year and we want to do all we can to make New York the next state to adopt paid family leave.

Best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving!


From The Paid Family Leave Coalition:

As many of us will get the chance to spend time with our friends and families during our Thanksgiving get-togethers, we’ve provided a kit to the extent the topic of paid family leave should come up. The kit includes a conversation guide, fact sheet, poster (for photos), story form, and ‘take action’ tips. We want to keep our momentum building and found this is a creative way to approach the 2016 legislative session!
