Most Americans agree that family comes first, but the U.S. is the only industrialized country without paid family leave. In one of the richest countries in the world, having a baby, a medical emergency or an aging parent can erase a person’s financial future.
Following the 90 minute screening of Zero Weeks, representatives from the Indiana Institute for Working Families will discuss where Indiana stands with respect to families’ access to paid leave. Participants will then have the opportunity to share their perspectives and personal stories with state and local lawmakers in attendance.
Watch the trailer, invite friends, and join us on August 28th! Registration and light refreshments will be available at 5:30pm, with opening remarks at 5:50pm. The film will begin at 6:00pm.
“We’re making people choose between the family they love and the job they need. No other nation on the planet is making these choices.”
