June Tele Town Hall | Focus on Fathers & Paid Family Leave

June 18, 2015

retro-phone-1We know that the issues that affect Oregon parents are just as important to dads as they are Oregon moms. Dads do care work, are involved in their children’s lives and stay at home more than ever before — which is why it’s time to honor their involvement at home and in the growing movement for better work-family policies.

So we’re hosting a “Tele Town Hall” this Friday, June 19th, from 1:00 -1:30 PM with two terrific guest speakers:

  • Multnomah County Commissioner Jules Bailey, a soon-to-be dad who believes it’s time for policy and culture change when it comes to paternity leave, and
  • Josh Levs, author of All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, and Businesses — and How We Can Fix it Together,a new book that talks frankly about our broken work-family policies, how they affect dads, too, and why it’s important that dads join the growing movement for change.

It promises to be an interesting conversation, and with Father’s Day right around the corner (Sunday, June 21st!), it’s a timely one, too!
