Quotes


The National Partnership “is a powerhouse organization. It has been for literally decades, and we owe you a profound debt of gratitude. … Our journey is the ongoing struggle to build a more perfect union. Our progress is indeed unmistakable… but the work remains — that is also unmistakable. I am reminded, day in and day out, of the unfinished business of America. ... The arc of the moral universe does bend toward justice. It does bend toward expanded opportunity. But it doesn’t bend on its own. So let’s bend it together. Let’s cause good trouble together. Let’s build a better country together."
— Labor Secretary Thomas Perez

"It comes down to this. You need to work to pay for high quality care and you need care to work. ... This is why we’re announcing today that we’re supporting passing legislation like the FAMILY [Family And Medical Insurance Leave] Act and the Healthy Families Act. We must."
— Care.com CEO Sheila Lirio Marcelo
