As employers of domestic workers, we know that the history of domestic workers rights are uniquely tied to the legacy of slavery and anti-Black racism. In order to build a care infrastructure that honors the dignity of all people, regardless of race, class, age, ability, gender, gender identity, and sexuality, we must deepen our understanding of systems of oppression—the root of these inequities.
This means intentionally working to dismantle white supremacy, having a deep anti-racism analysis, being aware of our personal bias and privilege, and centering equity and inclusion in our work and our mission.
Please RSVP to join Hand in Hand: the Domestic Employers Network and Caring Across Generations for our first Anti-Racism 101 training on Thursday, June 25 at 7 pm Eastern/4 pm Pacific.

Join us on Saturday, June 6th to grieve those lost in nursing homes, and to call for policy, testing, and PPE that will protect nursing home workers and residents alike.
Join us to envision a future long-term care system that honors and affirms the lives of Black and Brown people, of people with disabilities and older adults, rather than endangers them through racist, ableist and ageist policies that allow nursing homes to put profits before their residents or workers.
Together, we will: Honor those who have died from Covid-19 inside nursing homes
Call for protection for residents and workers--increased staffing, full testing, needed protective equipment, sick leave and hazard pay for workers, and all necessary medical care for residents
Demand that nursing home companies put people before profits, rather than seek immunity for deaths in their facilities.
Urge Governor Newsom to accept the Senate and Assembly’s budget proposal that would protect critical long-term care programs and make cuts to prisons.
Online vigil with In-person component to be captured live. ASL and Closed Captioning will be provided.
As seniors, people with disabilities, family caregivers, home care workers and nursing home workers, we are very much on the front-lines of the corona virus crisis. Every day, we see the already existing cracks in our care infrastructure grow deeper. Nursing homes have become ground zero for the corona virus. Individuals and families struggle even more to find and afford the home care they need. Home care workers and nursing home workers risk their lives every day without adequate Personal Protective Equipment or paid sick leave. We have been in crisis, and it is now worse than ever before.
Join the NY Caring Majority in dialogue with Congressman Antonio Delgado as we find solutions to urgent long-term care issues in our region and our country.
If you have a question for Congressman Delgado related to long-term care, please submit it when you register. We will get to as many questions as possible during the forum.
This forum will be held virtually through ZOOM. You will receive the ZOOM details to access the meeting the day before the meeting.... See MoreSee Less
*Accessibility: Event will be accessible by phone or video via Zoom. We will have captioning and ASL interpretation.*
Did you know that the vast majority of California nursing homes are for-profit and that investors actually make money off them? Did you know that the nursing facilities with the highest number of COVID cases and deaths have had the highest number of infection control violations over the past several years?
Sign up for the teach-in to learn about the problems in big for-profit nursing home chains and find out how you can take action! Now is NOT the time for the state to cut community-based programs while giving nursing homes immunity for dangerous practices.
More information about the issue:
The huge concentrations of COVID cases and deaths in care facilities has been a national disgrace. This crisis comes from years of ignoring problems with nursing home staffing and regulation. Nursing facilities are nearly all for-profit, and money must not be a motivating factor in whether or not to provide the best care possible. The state must be aggressive in protecting people. The low priority placed on the lives of older people and disabled people living in facilities is a sign of ageism and ableism, oppression based on age and disability. And now the Governor wants to provide immunity for nursing homes from criminal or civil penalties for COVID deaths during the pandemic? Nursing homes with better practices oppose immunity! Let's not give in to the big for-profit chains.
Please attend to learn about these problems, declare that ageism and ableism are unacceptable in our community, and join the dialogue to prevent future tragedies.
