#CareIsEssential

Congress recently made a historic move to lift up millions of care workers who are the heart of our economy, with a $3.5 trillion budget proposal that includes a transformational investment in care workers. With this budget, Congress has shown their support for President Biden’s original infrastructure blueprint, which included a $400 billion investment in home and community-based services (HCBS). Our elected officials are joining the care movement — now, we need them to go all the way.

We’re not in the clear — for Congress to seize this once-in-a-generation opportunity to create a care economy that benefits all workers, we need to make sure the largest investment in Medicaid and HCBS is included in the final budget.

Write to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer today and urge him not to cut care workers from the final budget package.

To create good jobs for care workers and ensure that our loved ones have the services they need to live with dignity, we need Congress to keep Biden’s full $400 billion commitment to care — the largest possible amount — in the final budget.

Let’s talk about care. Workers like Ms. Kay provide compassion and empathy on the job every day so clients can live in dignity. But she doesn’t have the protections she needs to care for her own family.

We need to invest in care because #CareIsEssential
