About this Event
The New York Caring Majority is a statewide campaign of older and disabled people, home care workers, family caregivers, and advocates fighting for a world where care is at the center, where all of us have the healthcare and home care we need, where and when we need it, and where we show we value care work by praising it and by providing care workers family-sustaining wages and benefits.
New York’s long-term care system was straining to support our families long before COVID-19. Now, as we face the task of continuing to recover from massive deaths alongside devastating cuts to our social safety net, our local and state elected officials must step up and lead by improving and expanding the programs that our families need.
Our policy priorities are to pass the New York Health Act with full inclusion of long-term care and to win the Fair Pay for Home Care Act, which would raise home care-worker wages by 150% across the state.
