Event Details

Come Learn More about the Need for Earned Sick Days in Philadelphia and

Share Why Workers Need Earned Sick Days with
Members of Philadelphia's City Council.


Over 40% of workers in Philadelphia have no earned sick time, including 78% of restaurant and accommodation workers, and are forced to choose between going to work sick, or sending a child to school sick, and losing a day's pay or possibly their job.

The Coalition for Healthy Families and Workplaces is holding a Lobby Day, complete with Lobby Training, to provide information for Philadelphia's City Council about the importance of earned sick time.


WHEN: Wednesday, February 8th at 11:30

WHERE: DC 47 1606 Walnut Street, 3rd Floor, Philadelphia, PA

   The  Lobby Training will be from 11:30 to 12:30 with visits with Councilmembers and staff to follow. Food will be provided. Come for the whole day or for as long as you are able to.


You do not need to be an expert or have lobbying experience to take part in this exciting day.  We will provide you with everything you need to advocate for this important issue!
