Current Coalition Members

Paid Leave Hawaiʻi is a broad coalition of organizations and individuals working to win paid family and medical leave for ALL families in Hawaiʻi. We're building on previous efforts to secure guaranteed paid leave by advocating with legislators. We know families are strongest when we have time to heal from serious illness or injury, welcome a new child, or help a loved one recover or ease their passing. It's time for legislators to put 'OHANA FIRST and pass paid family and medical leave.
