Zero Weeks Film Screening and Discussion


Most Americans agree that family comes first, but the U.S. is the only industrialized country without paid family and medical leave. In one of the richest countries in the world, having a baby, a medical emergency, or an aging parent can erase a person's financial future.


Weaving powerful stories together with insightful interviews with leading policymakers and business owners, ZERO WEEKS explores America's paid leave crisis, the cost of doing nothing, and what we can do about it.


The Institute for Working Families is pleased to partner with AARP Indiana and local organizations to bring this film to locations across Indiana and to engage policymakers and audience members in discussion about paid leave policies.


You can also share your #paidleave story, and sign up for action alerts to help secure paid leave for Hoosiers.
