About Caring Across Generations:
Caring Across Generations is a national campaign that brings together all people touched by care — family caregivers, care workers, older adults, and people with disabilities — to transform the way we care in this country, and to create an inclusive society that helps all of us reach our full potential, live well, and age with dignity. Founded in 2011 by worker activists Sarita Gupta and Ai-jen Poo, the campaign has driven care wins in Hawaii and Washington state, as well as working with partners on the federal level to drive national policy, and implementing culture change strategies in the entertainment industry to shape how our society sees care on a broader level.
Caring Across is entering our ambitious next phase: launching a national campaign for Universal Family Care (UFC), a new framework to cover care at every stage of life. Care has been entering the public discourse as an issue that affects all of us, and needs a public solution. UFC is a holistic, comprehensive solution that responds to the interconnected nature of all care needs that families face. Everyone contributes and everyone benefits to receive access to benefits ranging from childcare to paid family and medical leave, to elder care to supports for people with disabilities, all through one easily navigable, financially stable system. UFC is forward-looking, rooted in smart economics and common sense, and fundamentally committed to advancing gender, racial, and economic justice.
