#MAKECARECOUNT: WORKERS' RIGHTS & REINVENTING THE CARING ECONOMY

March 1, 2021 at 4:30 PM PT (7:30 PM ET)

RSVP: https://secure.everyaction.com/7mfe8uC1ikeo8Yx2_HWqMg2

Caregivers, domestic workers, essential workers, parents, activists, allies are all welcome!

Join NDWA for a virtual town hall with Rep. Jamaal Bowman, Rep. Nikema Williams, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and essential frontline caregivers, where they will highlight the urgent need for a comprehensive care infrastructure that supports the caregivers — especially Black and Latinx women — who make all other work possible.

Care is a cornerstone of our economy, at the center of our communities and everyday life.
If we invest in and value care for the essential work that it is, we can speed an economic recovery that is swift, equitable and sustainable for all of us.

This #MakeCareCount virtual event will give you an opportunity to hear from elected leaders who are responding directly to our concerns about work, family and care. You’ll also hear directly from caregivers working on the frontlines and you’ll have an opportunity to take actions that will go a long way in ensuring our shared vision for a care economy becomes a reality.
