America’s Paid Leave Crisis and the Cost of Doing Nothing: Film Screening & Discussion

At some point in their lives, nearly every working person will welcome a new child, deal with their own serious health issue, or need to provide care to a seriously ill, injured or disabled loved one. Despite this, America has no paid family leave policy. In one of the richest nations in the world, having a baby, a medical emergency or an aging parent can lead to job loss and poverty.

The COVID-19 pandemic has only underscored the critical importance of paid leave. ZERO WEEKS provides a powerful pre-pandemic snapshot of paid family leave’s impact on American families, employers, and communities.

GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students and 9to5 Georgia invite you to join us for a screening and panel discussion on paid leave. Policymakers, business leaders, families, as well as early care, health, and senior care professionals are encouraged to join us for this important conversation.
