On Thursday, February 11th, Dr. Cicely Fadel, MD, FAAP, testified on behalf of DC AAP at the DC Council’s Committee of the Whole public hearing on the Universal Paid Family Leave Act of 2015. The Bill, (#21-415) which DC AAP supports, proposes 16 weeks of universal paid leave providing 100% of wages up to a maximum of $3000/week for all DC residents.

If you would like to get more involved in DC AAP advocacy efforts, and maybe testify at an upcoming DC Council public hearing that is of interest to you, please let us know by emailing Emily.berg@aapdc.org.
