AAPD is partnering with the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Jobs with Justice, and Hand in Hand: The Domestic Employers Association for the Caring Across Generations campaign: an initiative centered on transforming long-term care in the United States for our loved ones who count on the support of caregivers to meet their basic daily needs, the workers who provide the care, and the families who struggle to access and afford care for their loved ones.
On Tuesday, July 12th, the campaign will be hosting a Care Congress, where seniors, people with disabilities, family caregivers, home care workers, domestic workers, children and families of care workers and people who need care will be sharing their care stories.
We need as many people with disabilities to be part of this important dialogue!
What the Care Congress program will include:
- Sharing care stories: sharing testimonies and vision for change between seniors, people with disabilities, family caregivers, home care workers, domestic workers, children and families of care workers and people who need care
- Giving voice to change: engaging elected officials and key members of the Administration on the need for change
- Growing a movement at home: workshops and skill sharing to support participants to build the Caring Across Generations movement in their home communities.
The Caring Across Generations movement is centered on promoting honest, productive discussion among all those invested in improving care. If we are to meaningfully improve the care system for everyone, it is crucial that people with disabilities share their stories.
We need you at the table on July 12th!
Nothing about us, without us!
