Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Celebrates 25th Anniversary with New Video Wall

On February 5, The National Partnership for Women & Families will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). It’s been used more than 200 million times, and each use is a story that is personal, poignant and powerful.

It’s an important day for the National Partnership because they drafted and led the fight for this historic legislation, and they were there in the Rose Garden when President Clinton signed the bill into law.

Today, they’re leading the fight for a national paid leave program, and they are using this occasion to invite activists and partners across the country to share their stories on the new Support Paid Leave video wall.

That’s where you come in.

Please take a minute and use our simple video testimonial tool to share a few words about what #paidleavemeans to you. Only your first name will be visible to the public, and you can easily share the video with your friends when you're done.

Helpful tips: Please hold your phone sideways/horizontally when recording the video and be sure to mention your first name, city and state at the beginning.

Please be part of the FMLA celebration and help us advance paid leave by sharing your story today!
