Thank you to every one of our members and coalition partners for making this win possible! You sent thousands of letters and made hundreds of phone calls to City Council members. You signed petitions, rallied at City Hall, and shared your stories to explain how important earned sick days are to moms and our families. You even hand-delivered messages addressed to Speaker Christine Quinn to convince her to let the vote go through.
We did all this because as moms we know that access to earned paid sick days is not only vital to the economic security of countless families, but also makes good public health policy. They are also an important part of making a more humane New York.
