Join us in the streets!

Spotlight on Eldercare Dialogues

The Eldercare Dialogues are an innovative project developed by JFREJ, with partnership and leadership from the Aging in New York Hevra at B'nai Jeshurun, Adhikaar, Damayan, Domestic Workers United, and the National Domestic Workers Alliance.

The project emerged following the passage of the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, when the domestic worker movement and its allies asked a big question: What's it going to take to truly transform the domestic work sector, transforming our communities while we're at it?
