Today and everyday, we celebrate all the madres in our communities!
This Mother’s Day, help us fight alongside young parents for their right to parental and sick leave in schools by supporting the Young Parent’s Right to Education Act (AB2289). AB2289 would provide parenting students (birthing and non-birthing parents) with 8 weeks of parental/sick leave. Having a consistent policy for schools to uphold the rights of young parents is a vital step to ensuring ALL students have the support they need to reach their educational goals. Please help us ask Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez_Fletcher, Chair of the Appropriations Committee, for her continued support for pregnant and parenting youth by voting “Ave” on AB2289!
