Send us your story and help us build our case that Connecticut needs to enact its own form of paid family leave for all employees. Too many workers are facing financial hardships when they welcome a new baby, develop their own serious illness or need to care for an elderly parent. As we work towards change we need your voice so that the Connecticut Legislature understands how severe this problem really is.
