Thursday, June 28, 2018 - ZeroWeeks
We are so pleased to be partnering with Main Street Alliance, Voices for Vermont's Children and VT FaMLI to offer a showing of ZeroWeeks. This documentary explores America’s desperate need for modern paid family leave policies. With the help of a variety of experts, we follow the historical arc of family and medical leave and how our nation arrived where it is now: lagging behind every other country in the world except for Papua New Guinea.
Vermont citizens, advocacy groups, and legislators worked very hard to pass H.196, An act relating to paid family leave, but it was vetoed by the Governor in May.
In a panel discussion following the movie, Lt. Governor Zuckerman will engage legislators, advocates, and individuals who worked on this issue and ask them to share their thoughts and future plans.
6:30PM, Main Street Museum, 58 Bridge Street, White River Junction
