Fighting for Economic Justice for Caregivers: A Fireside Chat with Civil Rights Leader Dolores Huerta
Millions of American families have had their lives turned upside down by family caregiving, a responsibility made more difficult by the COVID-19 pandemic. This vital role falls disproportionately on the shoulders of women of color who often struggle to provide care while working. During the pandemic, 16% of Latino and 13% of Black adults have been forced to leave the workforce to provide care for an adult family member. Join civil rights leader Dolores Huerta for a conversation about how she has used her voice to shine a light on care inequities and to demand economic justice for family caregivers through policies like paid family and medical leave.
