Reopening Long Island and Building a Fair Economy: Care Work in the COVID Crisis: Challenges and Opportunities

Reopening Long Island and Building a Fair Economy, a forum series on suburban labor organizing and worker power in the COVID pandemic and beyond will be presented by Hofstra Labor Studies and the Center for the Study of Labor and Democracy in collaboration with Long Island Jobs with Justice and A.L.L.O.W. (Advancing Local Leadership Opportunities for Women).

 

Forum #2
Care Work in the COVID Crisis: Challenges and Opportunities
Tuesday, July 7, 2:00-3:30 pm

The COVID crisis closed schools and child care centers, compromised adult care facilities, and presented safety risks for home health workers. This poses enormous financial and mental health challenges to millions of working people. Failure to resolve those challenges will threaten the prospects for building a fair and sustainable local and national economic recovery. Join the discussion on how best to rethink New York and national care policies for a more just and equitable future.
