Ai-Jen Poo, a gifted organizer recently honored by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, will be speaking at the Boston Care Congress on June 16th. The Care Congress will be held at 150 Mt. Vernon St. in Dorchester, Massachusetts, from 12:00 to 3:00 PM. Diverse stakeholders in the care economy will gather to share their stories and build a unified vision for transforming care in Massachusetts and the United States.

Poo is a daughter of pro-democracy immigrants from Chiang Kai-shek’s Taiwan who has been active for decades in worker-led groups. She was influential in New York’s recent passage of a historic Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights and is providing leadership for a new national campaign, Caring Across Generations, which is uniting care workers, elderss, members of the disability community, and their allies in order to win quality jobs and affordable care. “We all have a stake in transforming care”, states Poo.

Caring Across Generations is the movement-building campaign of a national coalition of several hundred organizations representing care workers and care consumers. The Massachusetts Caring Across Generations coalition was initiated by Massachusetts Jobs with Justice and is led by a steering committee of local organizations.

The Care Congress is FREE and childcare and a light lunch will be provided. Contact Mary at (617) 524-8778 or maryh (at) massjwj.net to register.
