Public Justice Review: What Families Need to Thrive

While families offer a locus of care and nurture that no other institution can rival or replicate, families need and deserve support from other institutions as they pursue their vocation. CPJ Fellow and Contributing Editor Rachel Anderson introduces our latest PJR series, Families Valued, and explores how a deeply privatized vision of family life that denies families’ interactions and interconnectedness with other institutions like business and government limits our ability to help families thrive.

Paid family leave is just one of the ways that businesses and workplaces support families. In this series, we will further investigate how the interconnection between workplace, church, public policy, and family can promote family flourishing in our contemporary economy.
