About Care in Action
Care in Action (CiA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting for fairness for the millions of caregivers and domestic workers in the United States, most of whom are women of color and immigrant women. Care in Action works to elevate the voices of women of color and advocates for an agenda that supports their ability to work and care for their families, with dignity. We provide the tools, training, and community that working families need to make their voices heard, and we organize and advocate for respect, recognition, and policies that support economic opportunity and equity.
Everyone deserves a fair wage and to feel safe in their workplace. Everyone deserves to be able to take a day off when they are sick. Everyone deserves to be able to care for their families without worrying about how they will pay the bills. Too often, it’s women of color who have to make difficult choices between these, because we aren’t represented in our government and policies aren’t made to include us. Care in Action is dedicated to organizing women of color and building a coalition to make change. We’re fighting for the representation we deserve, for policies that value care and the work domestic workers do every day to care for our loved ones, and for the policies that support us in taking care of our own families.
Care in Action is affiliated with National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA), a 501c3 working to shift the way care work is understood, valued, and compensated — to ensure that these much-needed jobs are good jobs with dignity, economic security, and opportunity for advancement.
