Paid Leave for All is the national campaign of the organizations leading the fight to win paid family and medical leave for all working people. We came together and developed a strategy because we wanted to coordinate our work and resources to maximize our impact and push paid leave over the finish line. We launched in 2019 under the guidance of our director, our executive board members, and working committees across policy, legislative affairs, field, and communications. Since the beginning we have maintained a small business coalition and Voices of Workers board through our member organizations. 

Together our groups:

  • Won the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) in 1993 which provides working people access to unpaid leave.   
  • Worked with state coalitions to help secure paid leave victories in 12 states plus the District of Columbia with bipartisan and business support. 
  • Lead the field through bold ideas and sector-defining research. 
  • Mobilize the workers and small businesses who are too often excluded from policy decisions.
  • Secured the strongest proposal for a federal paid leave program in a Presidential budget in history.
  • Mobilized and organized stakeholders across the country during the Build Back Better negotiations and successfully passed paid family and medical leave in the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time in history.

We are currently the only organization solely dedicated to advancing paid leave in the United States. We came within a vote of making paid leave federal law — and a win is within reach.
