New name, same values – and more progress for WA families!

new logo with old logo underneathThe Washington Family Leave Coalition has made some changes – including our name! We’re now the Washington Work and Family Coalition.

The new name reflects our more ambitious goals for healthy families and responsible businesses, include both expanding family medical leave insurance to include care for seriously ill family members and the worker’s own serious health condition as well as state paid sick days.

These workplace benefits are critical for the economic security of working people and families. We remain committed to working for responsible workplace policies that support healthy families and strong businesses in Washington.

We hope you’ll follow us on Twitter, ‘Like’ us on Facebook, and check out our revamped website.
