Caring Across Generations resolution passes out of committee!

Yesterday, the Caring Across Generations Seattle City Council resolution was unanimously passed out of committee! With the powerful personal stories of our steering committee members and a packed hall, there was no doubt in the room that we need to take action to stop the growing care crisis.

The testimony our steering committee provided at yesterday’s committee meeting spoke to how pressing transforming care for both recipients and providers is in our communities. Moved by the personal stories, Councilmembers were compelled to share their own experiences with care.

Yesterday’s victory marked an exciting step forward for the Caring Across Generations campaign, and we are looking forward to bringing the resolution before the full city council.

Join us when the resolution is brought before the full city council for a vote on Monday, June 25th at 1:30pm at Seattle City Hall (600 4th Ave, Seattle). Click here to register!

We will be delivering our 3,000 post cards to the full city council and demonstrating our broad based support. If passed, Seattle will be the first city in the country to stand up for the rights of people who rely on care and the workers who provide care.
