Our Work

Care Can’t Wait in the States

Taking on the care crisis can create a better economy, jobs, and a better standard of living for all.

That’s why Caring Across Generations recognizes the power of working in specific states with partners and coalitions to help move state policies forward that help everyone work, age, and live with dignity. This work is so important to not only advocate for people living in those states but to also create beacon legislation to influence national policy and build a nationwide movement of care advocates ready to enact change at the state and federal levels.

Our work in Georgia, California, Michigan, New York, and Illinois has led us to new connections, new opportunities for our supporters to take action, and exciting wins! In 2022 alone, we strengthened our relationships with 11 grassroots organizations across our priority states.

Last year, Caring Across Generations convened at state-based roundtable discussions that attracted leaders and community members from their regions. 

  • In Georgia, Actress and “P-Valley” star Brandee Evans was joined by Georgia state representatives Kim Schofield, Park Cannon and William Boddie and urged them to improve services and support for caregivers like herself. 
  • In Illinois, U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (IL) and U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky (IL-09) joined a virtual roundtable to underline the urgent need for federal support for the array of care programs and caregivers that provide invaluable support to families across Illinois.
  • In Michigan, more than 100 attendees met with U.S. Representative Debbie Dingell (MI-06) and Michigan state representatives Padma Kuppa and Stephanie Young to chart a path forward for addressing Michigan’s urgent unmet care needs for families and for care workers. 

We will continue our strong state work and collaborations because #CareCantWait!
