Rep. Davis, Councilman Dennis & Faith Leaders Join for a COVID-19 & Working Mothers Town Hall

Jacksonville, Fla. – On Thursday, May 14th at 5:30 p.m. Rep. Tracie Davis (FL-H.D. 13) will be joined by Councilman Garrett Dennis, faith leaders and working mothers for a virtual town hall to discuss what’s at stake for northeast Florida families during this pandemic and, following Mother’s Day, honor working mothers (and parents) who are stretched thin during this uncertain time. Faith leaders will share how congregations and faith communities are rising to meet the moment, faith-based COVID-19 resources and next steps that faith communities can take to support healthy families during COVID-19. 

In conjunction with a Faith in Public Life Mother’s Day awareness campaign for the rising need for paid family and medical leave in Florida, Representative Davis will invite some working mothers to share their stories in support of increased paid family leave, during and after COVID-19. In the previous Florida legislative session, Representative Davis introduced the Florida Family Leave Act, along with State Senator Janet Cruz, which would require Florida employers to allow parents to take paid family leave under applicable conditions. 

WHAT: Virtual Townhall on Working Moms & Healthy Families During COVID-19
