On October 20th, The American Society on Aging released the first-ever issue of their Generations Journal that features all Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and women-identified authors and experts. Titled Care is Fundamental, the issue was guest edited by our former Policy Director and now Executive Director of Family Values @ Work, Josephine Kalipeni.
The journal features articles from several of our Caring Across colleagues, on topics ranging from Sandwich Generation caregiving, to the narrative power of care, to aging while incarcerated. Please check out the links below to learn more about how these topics intersect with equity in aging.
And stay tuned for a Facebook Live Caregiver Corner on October 29th, featuring Josephine and our Caring Across authors in conversation with Patrice Dickerson, ASA’s Director of Programs and Thought Leadership. They’ll discuss how this issue came together, and why it’s so important to center the experiences of the most impacted as we fight for better care systems for us all.
