California: Why Care about Care? – Intersectional and Intergenerational Policy Solutions for an Equitable Care Economy

Registration Opening Soon

This is a regional webinar for California. 

Working families are struggling against the rising costs of caring for family members, young and old, threatening their financial health and damaging their incomes, workforce productivity, and health. For example, childcare costs are 37% for the average single parent household and 25% of people taking care of children (most of whom are women) are also taking care of seniors.  These costs, along with a rapidly aging and diversifying population in California, have propelled us into a caregiving crisis that disproportionately affects low-income people, people of color, women, and immigrants.

Join us as we explore the interwoven issues of the caregiving workforce, racial and gender justice, economic security, and health, and identify intersectional policy solutions such as paid family leave and universal family care – to these issues.
