Interdependence Day with the Caring Majority

Join the New York Caring Majority for an afternoon of Kitchen Table Conversations at Penn South. We'll drink lemonade, munch on watermelon, and facilitate grassroots conversations between seniors, people with disabilities, family caregivers, and home care workers on themes of interdependence and care. This "Interdependence Day," in conjunction with a broader week of action, this is Our Declaration: With the ongoing attacks on our rights and freedoms, we know this can’t just be another July 4th holiday with fireworks and parades. Our elected officials must deliver on the promise of "liberty and justice for all.” We need to be able to wake up each morning knowing that we’ll be able to put food on the table for our families each night. We must know that when our children go off to school, they’ll not only get a quality education but will come home to us safe. We need living wages, affordable healthcare, affordable time to care, and freedom from harassment and violence. We need to know that Black Lives Matter, that no human is illegal, and that our bodies are our own. Let’s guarantee that the people elected to represent us know what’s at stake this 4th of July, and that we won’t settle for anything less than we deserve. Normal is over. Business as usual is over. This holiday, we celebrate our Declaration: If you come for one of us, you come for all of us—and that's a declaration worth fighting for.
