Tackling Today’s Unprecedented Care Crisis

 Thank you for joining us for our Spring Celebration, as we gathered virtually to celebrate 15 years of advancing justice for workers caring for themselves and their loved ones. Throughout the years, we have been joined by numerous partners and allies in the movement, and it was an honor to come together for an evening of reflection, inspiration, and timely conversations about the care crisis facing America.

We couldn’t do this vital work without the solidarity of supporters like you, who have stood alongside us over the years and made our mission of passing comprehensive, inclusive and flexible work-family policies a reality for millions of workers nationwide. We are grateful to all our guests and supporters for joining us, and look forward to many more years of advancing justice for women and working families nationwide.

If you were unable to join us for the event, you can still watch and share the virtual gala with friends.
