Race, Power, the Pandemic, and the Demands of Black & Latinx Families

After the initial 2020 COVID-19 lockdowns, systemic inequities continue to harm women and families of color. These combine with rollbacks in reproductive rights, an ongoing fight for racial justice, persistent gun and police violence, and Congressional barriers to progress.

Families of color are determined to survive and pass on something to their families; they demand more of their workplaces and the care economy. However, to do so it is vitally important to transform structures that do not serve their communities and to reinvest in core values, community needs, and bold policy solutions.

How to Fight for Black & Latinx Families: Action You Can Take

We don’t just enforce civil rights laws; we help pass them, too.

Our initiatives for workplace justice and economic security fight for reforms to ensure every woman and family has the opportunity to thrive, at work and beyond. Joining forces with other advocacy and community organizations, we tackle the big issues that may start in the workplace, but have lasting consequences on our personal lives, our economic security, and our families. These innovative campaigns connect the dots between issues of workplace justice, child care, income support, livable wages, and family caregiving.
