The California Work & Family Coalition, a project of Next Generation, is an alliance of community organizations, unions and non-profits protecting every California worker?s right to put their family first. We work together to promote work family policies that help parents, caregivers, children and families thrive.
We believe that no one should have to risk their job to take care of themselves and their families.
We focus on transforming California laws to provide all workers critical rights to:
- Affordable family and medical leave to treat serious and chronic health conditions and care for a seriously ill family member;
- Affordable pregnancy and bonding leave for new parents;
- Paid sick days to treat personal illness, care for a sick family member and get preventive care;
- Workplaces free from discrimination and retaliation against workers with caregiving responsibilities.
The California Work & Family Coalition is one of sixteen state coalitions in the Family Values @ Work consortium working for paid sick days, family leave insurance and other policies that value families at work.
