Two moms join forces across party lines to fight for family leave
You may have seen in USAToday, Slate Magazine or Fox News, the story of Amber Scorah and Ali Dodd -- two incredible mothers, one a Republican from Oklahoma, one a liberal from Brooklyn -- who faced tragedy last year when they lost their newborn babies after not having the paid parental leave they needed.
PL+US is proud to be working with Amber and Ali in their Change.org campaign calling on the Presidential candidates to commit to acting for paid family leave national policy in their first 100 days. The support for their call to action has been incredible -- and it’s working -- with over 70K signatures on their Change.org petition and climbing every day!
These incredible moms will be appearing on Fox News' 'The Kelly File' tonight 5/13 (6pm PT/8pm CT/9pm ET) to discuss their experiences and call on all the Presidential candidates to make paid family leave a priority in their first 100 days in office.
UPDATE: In Case You Missed It...
Megyn Kelly's piece on The Kelly File with Amber Scorah and Ali Dodd was sensitive, thoughtful and moving. It set the tone for powerful, bipartisan action for paid family leave.
As Ali said - "Look at paid leave from a family values standpoints. You are going to make family strong and safer."
We couldn't be more proud of the work that Amber and Ali are doing, and to continue to advocate at their sides.
