The way our laws define family sends a signal about who our country sees and values. But these choices are more than symbols—they have powerful practical consequences for real people’s ability to care for those they love.
Join us as we continue pushing for policies that ensure no father, husband, partner, brother, or dear friend, has to choose between caring for a loved one and earning a paycheck.
This report, Recognizing All Families to Expand Our Movements: Insights from the Family Justice Network, shows that change is possible when people organize around the widely-shared value of family.
Despite the narrow decision, this case serves as a keen reminder that we must be vigilant as opponents of LGBTQ equality seek to use religion to discriminate and roll back the rights of LGBTQ people and families.
These license-to-discriminate laws allow businesses to refuse to serve individuals if doing so would be contrary to religious beliefs. While it is unfortunate that states are still working to undermine LGBTQ rights, ABB stands with those who are instead fighting for more inclusive and equitable laws.
Workers can now use their sick time to care for a more diverse range of family members, as well as to address needs arising out of domestic or sexual violence. All workers deserve the right to care for themselves and their families, no matter what their families look like. We’ll keep fighting here in New York and across the country to ensure that right is a reality for all our families.
In addition to the clear impact that HHS’s new enforcement priorities will have on women seeking reproductive healthcare, they will almost certainly invite religious and “conscience”-based discrimination against LGBTQ patients.
A Better Balance was proud to be on hand at City Hall yesterday as Mayor de Blasio signed into law an expansion of New York City’s paid sick time law to cover domestic violence purposes and to expand the definition of family members for whom New York workers can take sick leave.
