The WNY Peace Center united with local clergy, community activists, Coalition for Economic Justice and our friends at the Area Labor Federation are joining forces to support the NY Paid Family Leave Campaign. Join us as we stand with mothers and fathers of newborns, sons and daughters of parents that are sick, parents of sick children, spouses and family members who life hasn’t treated well and all those who need paid time off to deal with life. This Friday, May 22nd at 11 a.m. we will stand with workers as we press for passage of Paid Family Leave in NY State. Join us at Pilgrim-St. Luke’s United Church of Christ, 335 Richmond Ave, Buffalo, NY (at the corner of West Utica). We need your presence. Please join us and invite others. This is a fight we can and must win for all New Yorkers. For further information on NY Paid Family leave and how you can make a difference, http://citizenactionny.org/paidfamilyleave. For further information on the WNY Peace Center, http://www.wnypeace.org. “My faith impels me to stand with workers”, states Reverend Justo Gonzalez, II, Executive Director of the Western New York Peace Center and Co-Pastor at Pilgrim-St. Luke’s United Church of Christ. He continues, “Moms and dads should have paid time off to be with their newborns and families in crisis should have to decide between work and care for a loved one. I also know the pain of loss and the need to take off significant time to care for my elderly mother during sickness and at her death. No one should have to balance care for their children, their loved ones or themselves with whether they will have a job when they get back or face financial ruin during the joyful days of newborns or difficult days that life often brings.”
