Legislative Town Hall Supports Investment in Caring Economy
Two short panels will discuss:
- protecting current programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security; and
- implementing future policies that will build a quality direct-care workforce to support America’s families in meeting care needs across generations.
PHI Government Relations Director Carol Regan will frame the panel discussions, which will include workers, consumers and employers.
Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) and other members of Congress have been invited. Harkin recently introduced a Sense of the Senate Resolution that commits policymakers to addressing America’s caregiving needs, including quality direct-care jobs and accessible home- and community-based services.
Please join PHI for this important forum on creating a caring economy — and invite your member of Congress and their staff to attend.
The one-hour program takes place in Room 902 of the Hart Senate Office Building and starts at from 11 a.m.
