Co-founder of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, working to bring dignity and fairness to home care workers.
“Child care should be universally accessible and affordable to all families, and child care workers must be able to earn living wages and be treated with dignity and respect. For far too long, those in power have devalued caregiving and allowed for women, especially women of color, to be forced out of the workforce and care workers to be underpaid. Parents and care workers are doing the crucial and challenging work of nurturing the potential of future generations. As a nation, if we’re to realize our potential, they must be supported by our public policy, our systems and a culture that values care.”
