Workers across the country will come together for a day of disruptive action on Tuesday, July 13, 2021 to declare Care is Essential. This day of action focuses specifically on Black, brown, and API womens’ work with a clear demand for Congress to enact the White House’s plan for a $400BN investment in care jobs and the women of color who lead the workforce.
In at least 15 cities across the country, we will plan 40 actions and in-person events that are as large as possible given health guidelines, worker safety, and community engagement. The day will include online action led by workers, demanding action from Congress to pass, and the American Jobs Plan alongside the American Families Plan to ensure the health, safety, and economic well-being of every worker.
