Looking out for Los Angeles' women firefighters

L.A. City Councilmembers unanimously passed my measure to look into improving maternity leave policies for the City’s women firefighters. We need to make sure that unpaid time off taken by women firefighters for maternity leave counts toward their seniority, and that their eligibility for promotions and retirement is unaffected. 


As we strive toward a more diverse and inclusive fire department, we must take care to address the unique needs of our women firefighters.
