Tell Illinois Lawmakers We Need Comprehensive Paid Family & Medical Leave

Sign the petition below.

At some point, nearly everyone needs time to recover from a serious illness or care for a sick loved one. But 59% of Illinois families cannot even take the unpaid leave they need without risking their jobs and income. Comprehensive paid family and medical leave is essential for cancer patients so they can focus on their treatment and recovery without the risk of losing their job. The Family and Medical Leave Insurance Act (SB 835/HB 5029) creates a state-run insurance program that allows Illinois workers to use up to 26 weeks of leave a year. Join us by calling on Illinois lawmakers to enact paid family and medical leave now!
