Intersecting the Movement
JFREJ is working towards cross-issue, intersectional coalition building! Join us!
Join JFREJ’s Shalom Bayit Campaign for a training on three vital public programs that support seniors, people with disabilities, and low-income communities: Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Learn how we can better support ourselves and people in our communities while building strong cross-issue movements!
Public benefits not only allow individuals and families to access home-care; they also create jobs for domestic workers who provide indispensable long-term care and support. Understanding how these programs work and fighting against cuts is essential to creating new jobs in the care sector and ensuring that those jobs are quality jobs, with fair labor standards and the right to organize. The Shalom Bayit Campaign, in partnership with the Caring Across Generations Campaign, is committed to protecting our social safety net at the same time that we organize in solidarity with domestic workers.
Come and learn about the history of Public Benefits in the U.S., how to navigate these programs, and the nature of the attacks on Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. Prepare yourself to organize with the Caring Across Generations Campaign and win justice and dignity for care-givers and care recipients alike.
January 24th from 7pm to 9pm. Check the Upcoming Events page for more details. See you on the 24th!
