Do you have an immigrant caregiver you would like to highlight?

Day-after-day immigrant caregivers help keep families and children healthy and safe! They are truly unsung heroes! 

"I have personally benefited from the work of immigrant home health aides. During this pandemic they made it possible for me as an elderly disabled person, to stay home when New York City was ground zero for the disease. They braved the risks of the pandemic to come to work, and therefore keep me alive."

Across the country immigrants make up more than 18% of the nation's healthcare workers, 18% of childcare workers, 27% of the direct care workforce, and 12% of the education workforce. Moms are so thankful for the countless contributions immigrants make to keep families and kids healthy, educated, and safe! A great way to thank these unsung heroes is to lift up their contributions and share their story. 

USE YOUR VOICE! Tell us about the wonderful immigrant caregivers in your life! 

Unfortunately we're seeing anti-immigrant rhetoric ramp up. But we know the reality, immigrants are our nation’s strength. We need to remind our members of Congress of the critical role immigrants play in our communities and economy, such as doctors, nurses, home care workers, teachers, and childcare workers. We do that by sharing with them real-life stories from families who have benefited from the great work of immigrant caregivers. 

SHARE YOUR STORY! Is there an immigrant caregiver in your life who is critical to your family's health, education, and safety?

Please share your experience with us and will share these stories directly with members of Congress. Remember, you can also share your story anonymously.
