Putting family first comes at too high a price for most Louisianans: people can’t afford to go without pay while recovering themselves or caring for their family.


Louisiana Families First is a statewide coalition of medical experts, businesses, families, and advocacy organizations who recognize the benefits paid leave will provide for Louisiana families, including improving infant and maternal health outcomes and supporting our growing aging population. We’ve come together to advocate nationally and in Louisiana for the passage of state and federal paid family and medical leave legislation, and we’d love for you to join us.
