The Christian tradition sees both family life and work as two God-given spheres of human responsibility. Yet many parents experience work and family life as sources of constant conflict.

Time to Care: The Legislative Toolkit
The Time to Care Guide aims to help Christians advocate for paid family leave in a principled way. It offers concrete tools, like sample letters and emails to public office-holders. In keeping with the Center for Public Justice’s philosophy of rooting policy work in Christian principles rather than narrow categories of right and left, the Guide offers six principles that should be part of any paid family leave policy.
Ensuring that families have time to care
The family is the most basic human institution. We recognize its inherent God-given value, as well as its value to a healthy society.
Join us in advancing policies that honor God’s call to both work and family life.
Families Valued is an initiative of the Center for Public Justice, a civic education and public policy organization that works to equip citizens, develop leaders and shape policy to serve God, advance justice and transform public life.
