About Caring Across Generations:
Caring Across Generations (CAG) is a national 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 Sarita Gupta and Ai-jen Poo, our campaign is focused on creating change in three ways: organizing a powerful movement of the Caring Majority – the majority of Americans who are directly affected by the need for care, fighting for groundbreaking policy at the state and federal level, and changing hearts and minds through storytelling and cultural organizing. We were behind the historic win to extend federal minimum wage and overtime protections to home care workers. In 2017 helped pass the nation’s first Family Caregiver benefit in the state of Hawaii. And in 2018, helped Washington state create the nation’s first universal public program for long-term care.
About the Position
Caring Across Generations seeks an experienced, strategic and driven Campaigns Director who will lead our federal and state campaigns focused on passing legislation that benefits caregivers and ultimately lays the groundwork for our signature policy, Universal Family Care. You will work in partnership with the founder and director to drive a table of national partners committed to advancing the care agenda and securing investments in the care infrastructure.
The Campaigns Director will ensure our team is coordinated to win strategic campaigns for family caregivers in communities of color and other communities that struggle to find and afford the care they need. As a senior member of the Caring Across team at a moment of tremendous opportunity, you will oversee the planning, execution, and evaluation of all campaigns that will help Caring Across Generations achieve its mission.
You will work with colleagues who are as dedicated and passionate about care, caregivers, and care workers as you are; who care deeply about justice and equity; and who, like you, are bold, strategic, and take responsibility for achieving substantial progress toward our mission every year.
You will leverage existing relationships, build new ones, and work with our national partners to create meaningful and mutually beneficial collaborations that advance shared goals and win big for family caregivers.
