No one should have to choose between a paycheck and caring for a loved one. Paid family and medical leave policies should be inclusive of all kinds of families.

GLAD, together with EqualityMaine, MaineTransNet, ACLU of Maine, and Maine Women’s Lobby, is urging the Commission to Develop a Paid Family and Medical Leave Benefits Program to adopt an inclusive definition of family to ensure families of all kinds have the ability to take care of each other when the need arises.
