SEIU Build Back Better March

MomsRising's picture

Tuesday, MomsRising marched with Service Employees International Union (SEIU), care workers and advocates escalating their demand for Congress to pass Build Back Better this week. Care work spans all the stages of life from child care to elderly care and those who do it carry the invisible load of ensuring our loved ones are taken care of. They deserve the dignity of fair wages and those in need of care should have access to it . 

Here are some memorable moments from the event:

Jose Hernandez gave a powerful testimony as a care consumer on the importance of care workers in his life and the life of many others who depend on home care.

Senator Chuck Schumer spoke about the importance of each and every part of the Build Back Better bill.



"Lawmakers seem to talk all the time about budgets and deficits, and not enough about the ways families struggle without the care infrastructure that would support our physical, mental, and financial well-being." -Bobbi Linskens
