Executive Summary

Since 2003, Family Values @ Work ([email protected]) has built the power of women, caregivers and grassroots organizations fighting for gender and racial equity. Through this grant, we will expand and deepen our social justice feminist practice (meaning an intersectional, holistic feminist movement-building approach), while scaling up our leadership development models to engage more worker activists - primarily women and caregivers across intersecting identities of race, class, gender identity, sexuality, ability, immigration status and language. By putting these caregivers in the driver's seat of community leadership, movement building and elected office, we will accelerate systems change that benefit everyone, especially those most impacted by inequity. This project will build the personal agency of caregivers throughout our network and beyond, instill lasting community power, establish more partnerships between the community and elected feminist leaders and ultimately lead to transformative policy change at local, state and federal levels that achieves race, gender and economic justice.
