    • Join the Shalom Bayit: Justice for Domestic Workers Campaign for the Eldercare Dialogue Series.

We also uncover our shared values and aspirations for what elder care and elder care work should be, discuss strategies to address those challenges and lift up our values (e.g. quality jobs and quality care), and develop our base of workers, consumers, and families prepared and committed to participate in pilot worker and consumer training programs. In partnership with Domestic Workers United, Adhikaar, Damayan, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Central Synagogue, and B'nai Jeshurun's Aging in New York Hevra.
