Zero Weeks Film Screening

Kelly Elementary, 9030 SE Cooper
9030 South East Cooper Street
Portland, OR 97266, US (map)



At some point in our lives, all of us will have a sick partner, an aging parent, a new baby or adopted child, or get sick ourselves. And since taking care of family is non-negotiable, we all need to be able to take time from work without worrying about losing our jobs or going into serious debt. This is why Oregon needs a paid family and medical leave insurance program and why Family Forward Oregon is bringing you this special screening of Zero Weeks, the fourth documentary by award-winning director, Ky Dickens. Dickens was inspired to make a film about paid leave, after facing financial depletion, emotional turmoil and guilt of having “not enough time,” due to a lack of paid leave, after the birth of her first child.

Join us on Friday, December 1st at Kelly Elementary. Doors open at 5:30 and the screening will begin at 6:00pm. After the screening, a panel of leaders will share thoughts on what a paid family and medical leave insurance program could mean for Oregon.
