A Better Balance is fighting to provide LGBT workers and workers living with HIV/AIDS with the time and flexibility they need to care for themselves and their loved ones without sacrificing their economic security. You can help! Personal stories--even if anonymous--are crucial to educating lawmakers and the public about the real struggles facing LGBT workers, people living with HIV/AIDS, and their loved ones. If you are an LGBT worker or a worker living with HIV/AIDS with a story about your struggle or inability to take paid sick time or paid family leave to care for a loved one, please email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Is your campaign interested in developing paid leave fact sheets for the LGBT and HIV/AIDS communities? A Better Balance is available to help! Please get in touch with us at 212-430-5982 for more information.
