With so many mothers in the paid labor force, more two-income households and more single parents raising children, schools and workplaces need to keep up with today’s families. ParentsWork is a nonprofit Illinois parents’ organization that advocates for innovative solutions to ensure that everyone raising children has the time, resources and support they need to be successful in work and family life.
Since its start in 2006, the group has grown a grassroots network of nearly 800 parents from across the metropolitan Chicago area that have been tackling issues like the need for paid sick days and better school schedules. Most notable has been its pioneering campaign for a more “family-friendly” calendar in Evanston-Skokie School District 65, which led to a reduction in the number of days students are off or released early and helped demonstrate how parents can be a powerful catalyst for positive change.
To celebrate these accomplishments and its 5th birthday, ParentsWork will be hosting an open house gathering on Saturday, December 3rd from 4-7 PM at Café Twist. Click here for more information and to register.
