Welcome to the Washington Work and Family Coalition.

The Washington Work and Family Coalition includes small business owners, unions, community, faith, senior, and women’s groups and other grassroots organizations working to promote policies that support caregiving, healthy Washington families, and a healthy economy.

Our coalition was instrumental in passing statewide Sick and Safe Leave in 2016, Paid Family and Medical Leave in 2017, and an updated Equal Pay Act in 2018.

Now we’re working with our coalition partners, business allies, and the Employment Security Department (ESD) to implement the Paid Family and Medical Leave program. Premium contributions for the program began in 2019, and benefits will begin in January 2020. Learn more here.

We’re also planning for the next legislative session. As in the past, we’ll advocate for a strong foundation that will allow individuals, families, and businesses an opportunity to flourish and thrive.

Stay engaged and sign up for our newsletter. The newsletter will alert you to upcoming events, legislative session updates, and opportunities to take action.
