Documentary, panel on paid leave

Jun 07, 2018
“Zero Weeks” lays out a compelling argument for guaranteed paid leave for every American worker, looking at the issue from an emotional, medical, financial and global perspective.

Rockland — The Maine Women's Lobby, in partnership with the Midcoast Women's Collective, Alzheimer's Association of Maine, Rockland Public Library, and Maine Family Planning, present a screening of the documentary film “Zero Weeks” (2017, USA) Tuesday, June 19, at 5:30 p.m. at the library, 80 Union St.

Weaving powerful personal stories with insightful interviews, the award-winning “Zero Weeks” takes viewers on a journey to explore what many consider to be America’s paid-leave crisis … and the cost of doing nothing.

The film will be followed by moderated discussion with a panel that includes Eliza Townsend, executive director of Maine Women's Lobby; Kathleen Fleury, editor in chief of Down East magazine; and Penelope Padden, an Alzheimer’s Association of Maine advocate and caregiver. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 594-0310.
