About Caring Across Generations:
Caring Across Generations (CAG) 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 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.
