Casa Latina is a leading organization in the Caring Across Generations Campaign, launched in 2011.
2011 was the first year of the "age wave;" every eight seconds, an American will turn 65. In the coming years, more and more of our loved ones will need care, just as more workers will need quality jobs. At a time when new solutions to ongoing crises in care, jobs and immigration are desperately needed, people from all walks of life are joining together in a new movement for change.
Caring Across Generations is a campaign to transform long-term care in the United States for our loved ones who count on the support of caregivers to meet their basic daily needs, the workers who provide the support, and the families who struggle to find and afford quality care for their family members.
Protecting What We Have, Creating What We Need
The Caring Across Generations campaign works to protect the policies that support our loved ones to live with dignity, and to create the policies that will allow us to be a nation that takes care of one another across generations. Read more about our policy framework, the Five Fingers of the Caring Hand.
The campaign will support the creation of "Care Councils" in cities around the country, as well as town hall gatherings called "Care Congresses," to bring together care recipients, care workers and their families to share stories and work together in local communities to realize our dreams for care in America.

Caring Across Generations will also engage voters, young and aging, on the policy goals and values of the campaign, as well as related efforts to protect and expand workers rights, work-family balance and the existing safety net for the aging and people with disabilities. More
