Our fragmented care infrastructure drove millions of women out of the workforce – during the pandemic, and well before it. And most of the care workers we trust to provide support for our loved ones and ourselves are women of color, who can’t afford to care for their own families.
To recover and rebuild, we must invest in our nation’s caregivers. Join us and our partners in urging Congress to pass paid family and medical leave, affordable, quality childcare, expand home and community based services for older adults and people with disabilities, and create millions of care jobs. Because our families’ well-being can’t wait, which means care can’t wait either.

Read about the investment we’re demanding in our care infrastructure and who we’re organizing with.
In the Summer of 2020, Caring Across Generations organized a national table of leading organizations and experts to address the lack of a comprehensive care infrastructure, including childcare, paid family and medical leave (PFML), and long-term services and supports (LTSS). Together we produced a paper outlining the care solutions that families of all kinds would need, specifically noting how BIPOC, disabled and immigrant women’s experiences must be central to our economic recovery from the pandemic and beyond.
