Tell Governor Brown to Support SB 63 - The New Parent Leave Act

What is SB 63?

All new parents should have access to bonding leave for the health and well-being of children. SB 63 would ensure 12 weeks of job protection to new parents in businesses with 20 or more employees. Currently, the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) only extends job protection to workers in businesses with 50 or more employees. SB 63 would ensure more new parents could take leave to bond with their children without fear of losing their jobs.

Why should I sign this petition?

Your signature lets Governor Brown know that job-protected leave to bond with a new child should not be a privilege for the few, but an equal right for all families. Study after study has shown that not only does parental leave benefit infant and maternal health, it also benefits businesses. As more Californian parents juggle work and parenting responsibilities, we need to make family-friendly workplaces the norm, not the exception.

Dear Governor,

I urge you to sign SB 63 (Jackson), the New Parent Leave Act. SB 63 will ensure that more parents can take leave to care for a new child without fear of losing their jobs. This is crucial to the health and development of babies and children and the well-being and financial security of families 

Please sign this important bill. California families are counting on you!

    As a new mother, I know how vital it was to have protected leave from my job to bond with my son and heal from labor and delivery. Without the time at home, we may not have established a healthy breastfeeding relationship that set him up for a healthy childhood. The stress of new motherhood is enough without also having to fear losing your job and financial insecurity. Every person deserves that chance no matter what size company you work for.
