Dear Members of Congress:
We, the undersigned 113 researchers of aging, work and family issues from multiple disciplinary perspectives and institutions across the country, write this letter in support of making paid family and medical leave available to all working families. After a careful review of the evidence, we strongly urge the adoption of a United States national paid family and medical leave policy, specifically, the elements of the FAMILY Act (S.337 / H.R. 947) and similar legislative proposals. We ask that you cosponsor the bill in your respective legislative body.
