Every 8 seconds another American turns 65, yet our care workforce is too small to provide the services our aging population will need. While there is a need for more home care workers, unemployment is at an all time high. With these challenges comes amazing opportunity. We are working to create 2 million good jobs to meet the growing needs of our country.
This Sunday will feature a wonderful group of speakers, and hundreds of New Yorkers who provide and receive care, sharing their experiences, discussing local and national opportunities to transform care, and building a movement that creates quality jobs and affordable care now and for future generations.
*Award-winning playwright and performer Sarah Jones, who will share a performance with us;
*Ireland’s Inez McCormack, a strong international human rights voice for women;
*Care givers, seniors and people with disabilities who will share their care stories.
