Digital Advocacy Toolkit: Paid Sick Leave for Frontline Workers

The Philadelphia City Council has the opportunity to pass a bill that would give all workers the ability to have paid leave if they test positive for COVID-19 or were in contact with someone who tested positive and must self-isolate. This is more important than ever.

The bill gets voted in committee on Monday, June 22nd. It will then get a final vote the first week of July. ​You should use this toolkit everyday until the first week of July to make the biggest impact.

Your voice can make all the difference!

1199c has developed this social media toolkit that you can use to reach out to your city council member. You can use the graphics to tell your story as well as post on your councilmember’s page.
