Arizona Dream Act Coalition ADAC – Paid Leave for Arizona

July 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Arizona remains as one of the states with the largest amount of COVID cases and rapid increase amongst communities of color. As people fight against COVID, this means that access to paid leave and emergency leave is imperative and necessary. The Families First Act (FFA) passed by Congress on March 18, 2020 includes expansions to paid sick time and emergency paid leave at the federal level for workers impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19). The CARES Act passed by Congress on March 27, 2020 includes expansions of unemployment insurance to those laid off and other unemployed workers. Although this was a huge step towards paid leave, many families and communities who are highly impacted by COVID continue to be left out. Poder Latinx and Corazon, are members of the national coalition; Family Values at Work, join this conversation with community leaders and partner organizations to talk about workers rights and how we can continue to advocate for paid leave for all. Special Guests: Karina Ruiz, Executive Director of the Arizona Dream Act Coalition and David Gonzalez, Pastor from Light and Life Church.
