Position: Full Time

The way we work has changed, our families have changed – but care hasn’t. With millennials becoming parents and Baby Boomers getting older, the need for care is surging. Yet many people can’t just rely on family for the support they need, and paid caregivers barely make enough to support their own families.
Caring Across Generations is an intersectional campaign working to make care more affordable and accessible at every stage of life, while making sure caregivers are treated with respect and dignity. Founded in 2011 by workers’ rights activists Sarita Gupta and Ai-jen Poo, we’re focused on creating change in three ways: organizing a powerful movement of the Caring Majority, fighting for groundbreaking policy at the state level and federal level, and changing hearts and minds through storytelling and leveraging pop culture. We were behind the historic win to extend federal minimum wage and overtime protections to home care workers, and in 2018, helped Washington state create the nation’s first universal public program for long-term care.
The California Care Campaign Organizer will recruit and organize family caregivers, people with disabilities, seniors and other care recipients to join Caring Across Generations in the fight to expand and improve California’s care infrastructure. The Organizer will grow our base of 12 coalition partner organizations to the size and power needed to launch a city-based Universal Family Care (UFC) pilot campaign in 2022. UFC is a new holistic, sustainable framework that ensures every family will be able to afford childcare, paid family and medical leave, AND supports for loved ones who are aging or living with a disability. This position will also bring leaders together at key moments to support the federal Care Infrastructure agenda.
Must be willing and able to travel. Generally, openness to traveling 1-2 times per 2 month for 2-3 days around California once we begin to allow staff to travel again.
Candidates will be considered on a rolling basis until it is filled, but preference will be given to those who apply by midnight ET on December 1, 2020.
