Let’s fix a broken system that leaves educators without any paid disability related to pregnancy! AB2901 will end a status quo that disproportionately discriminates against women.

AB2901 will:
  • Provide 14 weeks of pregnancy leave and help retain educators during a historic educator shortage.
  • Stop public school educators from having to choose to get by with less pay or “schedule” pregnancies based on the school calendar.
  • End the discriminatory practice of forcing women to deplete their leave balances to bear children.
  • Close the $100,000 gap in retirement that women earn compared to their male colleagues.

Add your name to support the passage of AB 2901 (Aguiar-Curry), historic legislation that will finally give Paid Pregnancy Leave to educators.
