About Us

Minnesotans believe in caring for one another. Yet the vast majority of Minnesotans don’t have access to paid family & medical leave benefits. This means every day, Minnesotans face impossible choices between losing a paycheck or caring for a new child, an aging loved one, or themselves.

It’s time for a common-sense solution. Our current system is costly to workers, families, businesses, and our economy. Paid Family and Medical Leave is overwhelmingly popular across party lines and has already passed in seven other states. By passing Paid Family and Medical Leave we can begin to solve our caregiving crisis while leveling the playing field for all Minnesotans.
