Members of Washington’s delegation to the 2012 National Summit on Paid Sick Days and Paid Family Leave are now in the “other” Washington to study best practices and lessons for paid sick days and paid family leave campaigns.

Tomorrow they’ll spend the day visiting members of Washington’s congressional delegation to educate them about the importance of promoting healthy families and responsible business practices – like paid family leave and paid sick days!
