Caring Across Generations is a national campaign that brings together all people touched by care — family caregivers, care workers, aging Americans, and people with disabilities — to transform the way we care in this country, and to create an inclusive society that helps all of us reach our full potential, live well, and age with dignity.
This year, Caring Across is entering our ambitious next phase: launching our national campaign for Universal Family Care (UFC), which is a new social insurance program to cover the care that people need across the lifespan. Everyone contributes and everyone benefits by receiving access to benefits ranging from childcare to paid family and medical leave, to elder care to supports for people with disabilities. It will combine disparate programs and popular proposals into one easily navigable, financially stable system. Universal Family Care is forward-looking, rooted in smart economics and common sense, and fundamentally committed to advancing gender, racial, and economic justice.
The Managing Director will be our internal leader and prioritize driving our ambitious UFC campaign. They will be a strategy development partner for our campaign Co-Directors, Ai-jen Poo (Executive Director National Domestic Workers Alliance) and Sarita Gupta (Outgoing Executive Director of Jobs with Justice), and work closely with our Director of Operations and our team of senior leaders, our Management Team.
