Join our Faith Talks on Paid Family and Medical Leave, Feb. 20, 6 pm ET
Carol Barton

As women of faith, we are often primary caretakers of ourselves and our families, but what happens when we lack the time and resources to do so? Many women find themselves between a rock and a hard place when caring for their families because paid time off is not required in the United States, as it is in most developed nations.

On Thursday, February 20, please join us for a #FaithTalks podcast recording on paid family and medical leave. Jennifer Farmer will interview our very own Carol Barton, United Methodist Women’s executive for Community Action and lead staff for the Living Wage for All Campaign, as well as Jennifer Morales and Ellen Bravo of Family Values @ Work. During the call, we’ll discuss state and national efforts to pass “time to care” laws, the theological underpinning for such laws, and the work that our organization and our allies are doing to ensure women and working people can work with dignity without sacrificing the well-being of their families.

You can register for the call here: Prior to the call, you’ll want to download Zoom to your phone or computer. Once you register and download the program, you’ll have the option of joining the Faith Talks via computer or phone.
