Care for the Future

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We keep each other alive. Through mutual aid, through mothering, through the essential work of low-wage care providers and the care work of disabled kin for each other, Black and Brown communities have been honing the expertise to carry our world through the crisis of this pandemic to a future rooted in care. In particular, the femmes, the disabled, the queer and trans folks within our communities have done this labor and forged this genius. In this plenary conversation we will honor care work while resisting the urge to romanticize it.  We will explore what needs to shift within our economy, political systems and our social justice movements to create the care-based world we need.
