To provide support for Family Values at Work: A Multi-State Consortium (Family Values at Work). Family Values at Work is a national network of 16 state coalitions working to expand access to paid sick days and family leave insurance as core labor standards at the state and federal levels. It is comprised of nine core member states (CA, CO, GA, MA, ME, NJ, NY, WA, and WI) and seven associate member states (CT, IL, MI, MN, NC, OR, PA). Through investments in robust organizing, coalition-building, and civic engagement campaigns, it builds the capacity of those most impacted by the lack of access to paid sick and family leave to advocate for local, state and national policy change
