FaMLI Coalition Seeking Petition Signatures

The Family and Medical Leave and Insurance Coalition (FaMLI) is gathering signatures on a petition to deliver to Vermont lawmakers to urge them to pass a strong paid leave bill in 2024.

As a signer to the petition, the Alliance believes that each day without a paid leave program means that too many Vermont workers must choose between their paychecks and caring for themselves or their loved ones. These are desperate situations, which a strong leave program can prevent.

Visit the AARP website to sign the petition.
