  At a time when we desperately need new jobs, new paths to citizenship, and new solutions to persistent crises in care, broad coalitions of people from all walks of life are coming together to push for change.                                             In her book, Ai-jen Poo points to bold solutions that can help us better care for our loved ones as they age—and create millions of good jobs in the process. Please join us for this conversation and to celebrate the workers and organizations that made our new law possible. This event is part of the Caring Across America tour of 16 cities to build a movement to change how we care in the U.S. Ai-Jen Poo is the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, co-director of Caring Across Generations, recipient of the MacArthur Genius Award, and founder and former lead organizer of Domestic Workers United, an organization of Caribbean, Latina, and African nannies, housekeepers, and elderly caregivers in New York that organizes for “power, respect, and fair labor standards.”     IF YOU CAN'T JOIN US THAT EVENING:  please consider buying Ai-Jen's book and contributing to the continued organizing of domestic workers, contact Lydia Edwards.
