Founded in 2016, Paid Leave for the U.S. (PL+US) is the national campaign to win paid family and medical leave for everyone in the U.S. by 2022. In partnership with employers big and small, investors, and employees, we’ve won paid family and medical leave for nearly 8 million people. We define paid family and medical leave (PMFL) as follows: Parental leave so parents can bond with a new member of their family Caregiving leave so families can care for ill loved ones Medical leave so people can recuperate and recover Currently, the vast majority of working people in the U.S. lack access to a single day of paid leave. Working families need paid medical and family leave that is universal, accessible, inclusive and comprehensive for everyone, no matter where they live or work. PL+US works with business leaders, working families, and investors to ensure paid leave is a corporate best practice. In just three years, we have expanded access to paid family and medical leave for nearly 8 million working people at some of the nation’s largest employers including CVS, Starbucks and Walmart. We have transformed the corporate landscape by partnering with over 50 companies to change their workplace policy including Airbnb, Lyft, Postmates, and the City of Palo Alto), and collaborating with business leaders like Jennifer Hyman (Rent the Runway CEO and co-founder), Alexis Ohanian (Reddit co-founder), and Matt Rogers (co-founder of NEST and Incite Ventures) to raise awareness about the need for paid leave. We have rapidly changed the political and legislative landscape to win comprehensive and inclusive policy by successfully endorsing the first-ever slate of Paid Family Leave Champions in Congress in the 2018 midterms, laying the political groundwork for a legislative win. As the U.S. grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe this is a critical moment to pass long-term, high-impact paid family and medical leave legislation that centers the needs of working families.Something looks off?
