Caring Across Generations is a national movement of families, caregivers, people with disabilities, and aging Americans working to transform the way we care in this country.
By harnessing the power of online and grassroots organizing and culture change work, Caring Across Generations works to shift how our nation values caregiving and advocates for policy solutions that enable all of us to live well and age with dignity.
Our current patchwork of care systems, built on the unpaid work of women, especially Black and Brown women and immigrants, leaves families with care needs to fend for themselves and reinforces the cultural norms that care is the individual responsibility rather than a collective issue that requires community- and public-level solutions. Caregivers and care recipients often have to scramble to make it work in the face of impossible choices and feel isolated and alone.
But caregivers and their families aren’t alone – there are 53 million of us caring for a family member in the United States. That's why we’re building a collective movement, sharing our stories, shifting culture, and channeling our power towards structural change and building the just and caring future we all want to live in.
Now is the time to change the way we think about care. Join our movement.
