About the Program:
All workers, at some point, need to take time off to care for their newborn, their family members, or themselves, but many cannot afford to miss a paycheck. Paid family leave gives them the ability to care for their loved ones, keep their job, and pay the bills. During this live special, hear from a panel of experts who will discuss how the state of Connecticut might become the fifth in the nation to implement paid family leave.
Hosted by: Diane Smith
Catherine Bailey, Deputy Director Connecticut Women’s Education and Legal Fund; Chair, CT Campaign for Paid Family Leave
Suzanne Bates, Director of Policy and Legislative Outreach, Yankee Institute for Public Policy
Stacy Stableford, CT Resident and Caregiver
