The California Work & Family Coalition is an alliance of community organizations unions, non-profits, and individuals dedicated to helping parents, caregivers, and families thrive.


WHAT WE DO

Policy Change

We win legislative and advocacy campaigns, including leading the passage of California’s groundbreaking Paid Family Leave and Paid Sick Days laws.

Community Education & Outreach

We stick with policies to ensure their successful and equitable implementation by engaging communities in education and outreach initiatives designed to raise awareness and utilization of work-family rights.

Coalition-Building

We convene a deep bench of diverse organizational partners from across the state to advance state and regional work-family policies. Our legal experts, public health officials, community organizers, labor leaders, and government representatives collaborate to promote wellness and build family-friendly workplaces. 

OUR VISION

We envision a world where all people have the time, resources, and support systems to care for themselves and their families and to lead meaningful, healthy, and happy lives.

OUR MISSION

Our Mission is to organize communities to realize equitable, family-friendly workplaces and to expand the social safety net in California through policy, advocacy, and education.
