Hand in Hand Book Club

Hand in Hand Book Club

January 28, 2021, 7:30pm

**REGISTER HERE: actionnetwork.org/events/hand-in-hand-book-club

Join Hand in Hand for our inaugural book club! Our book club is for everyone—read the whole book, a few chapters, or even just a few pages. You'll meet Hand in Hand members and friends from around the country and have a chance to connect for the first time or deepen your friendship.

This month, we'll be reading Alicia Garza's new book The Purpose of Power and discussing how Hand in Hand, alongside domestic workers, family caregivers, and the organizations that support them, are building power, changing policy, and improving material conditions inside and outside of our homes.

Garza writes, "Movements are the story of how we come together when we've come apart." As you're reading, think about what she means, and how the movement(s) you are part of exemplify this.

**The first three people who RSVP will be sent a copy of the book, and the first 20 will get a special winter care package from Hand in Hand. Sign up now!**

Join with Hand in Hand members across the country for a session to envision our future working for an economy that centers care.

We imagine building the critically needed infrastructure to provide support to families, people with disabilities, and seniors throughout the country. We imagine a multiracial movement of domestic workers and allies who continue to prioritize racial, gender and disability justice, equity and full inclusion.

We’ve scheduled two sessions to create more time for people to join at least one of the conversations.

My Home is Someone's Workplace: Protecting Ourselves and the Workers in our Home During COVID-19

My Home is Someone's Workplace: Protecting Ourselves and the Workers in our Home During COVID-19

December 7, 2020, 6:30pm

Register Here: actionnetwork.org/events/protecting-ourselves-workers-in-our-homes-during-covid-19?source=direct_...

“How can I make sure my household and the workers in my home are safe at this moment?"

This is one of the biggest questions facing many individuals and families today. We know you value the cleaner, childcare provider, or attendant you employ, and you want to be a fair and responsible employer, but with virtual school, working from home, winter weather, holidays, a rise in COVID cases, and more, doing so can be difficult.

Learn about the most updated laws, and guidance, and hear from a panel of workers about what it means for the home to be a workplace right now.

This webinar will address questions like:

How do you continue to communicate and have consensus about the level of risks that everyone is taking?

How do you minimize sharing space indoors when the weather is bad?

What should households and workers do if anyone becomes sick?

What are your legal obligations as an employer and what resources can you connect workers to?


This webinar is being presented by Hand in Hand, @CasaLatinaNonprofit, and
@NannyCollective , with @SeattleLaborStandards.
