I'm deeply saddened by the news of @Andre Leon Talley's passing. It was a gift to explore his family tree with him during this season of Finding Your Roots. He was a force of culture. His roots were strong, and the legacy he leaves us will continue to flower brilliantly as he was.

Join @melindagates and other leaders to call on Congress to seize this once-in-a-generation opportunity to pass a long overdue paid family and medical leave policy.

Unless we act, this opportunity may slip away—with huge consequences for women, families, and the U.S. economy.

Here are two steps you can take today: 1) Call (202) 224-3121 to contact your members of Congress and urge them to keep paid leave in the budget package. 2) Spread the word. Share this post with your friends and family, and tag 3 people who care about this issue.

We’ve never been closer to passing #PaidLeave, and we can’t give up now. Don’t let Congress leave women behind.
