Care. Can’t. Wait. Economic frameworks that leave out women and families don’t work for anyone. Policies that make invisible the unpaid and paid labor of women and caregivers who make our country run still urgently need updating. We know building bridges and trains alone doesn’t fully get America fully to work when we don’t build the care infrastructure that enables bridge builders—and all people—to go to work, including childcare, home- and community-based services, paid family and medical leave, and living wages for all care workers. So the fight is still very much “on” to build that care infrastructure for us all now and into the future. On this panel you’ll hear from leaders and parents, including parent activists from the Pittsburgh-area, about what’s happening and how you can get involved!
