We continue to celebrate the great work of our Campfire Alums!

Congrats to Katie Bethell and Paid Leave US on the latest paid leave news out of CA!

Some articles and key research on paid leave and the impact in our communities:

Congratulations to CtK Alum, Rachel Hoff, who started this week as the Policy Director for the Ronald Reagan Institute.

The Center for Freedom and Democracy (CFD) will reaffirm Americans’ commitment to freedom and democracy during a period when our system of government is in doubt at home and under assault abroad.

We’re looking forward to the work that Rachel will do on behalf of our democracy.

We’re heading into the weekend hoping that our government can find a way to reopen the government, end the stalemate, and support the 800,000 hard working men and women around the nation who have dedicated their lives to public service.

Thanks to all of you for the work that you do on behalf of our nation.
