Lighthouse Yoga Center is a proud member of the growing DC Paid Family Leave Coalition, which is working hard to win paid leave for all of DC. We know our community needs paid maternity and paternity leave, as well as paid family leave for caretaking, and medical leave for ourselves during tough times. facebook picture 2[1]

We care about winning a strong paid family leave program for DC  – this means we want at least 12 weeks of paid leave, for as many people in the District as possible, and a high wage replacement for our lowest income neighbors. There is a bill at City Council that, if passed, would be game-changing. This landmark legislation needs to pass, and we believe that it can’t be watered down in the process.

If you want to keep up to date with this largely volunteer-run campaign, you can sign up here and we will let you know what’s going on!  The next step for the bill is to get it to a “markup” at the council.

The campaign has a great shot at winning this year, but it won’t be easy. Proceeds from this class will go directly to supporting the last few months of this crucial fight.
