#CountMeIn Call to Action - Week 23: Advocate for Caregiving Support

week 23 2018 share graphic

Every Oregonian deserves basic economic security for themselves and their family. For working women with caregiving responsibilities, family-friendly policies are essential to that security. Join us in using every tool at your disposal to ensure that caregiving supports -- such as paid family leave and flexible work hours -- are offered. And remember to use inclusive definitions of family, so that folks and families living at the intersection of multiple identities receive these vital supports as well.

Advocate for caregiving support in your workplace.

Research shows that access to caregiving support, such as paid family leave, on-site child care, and flexible work hours, is one of the most effective ways to ensure economic security and equity for Oregon women. Do so particularly if your job is highly secure, if you serve in leadership, and/ or if you’re a man.
