Power to the Parents: Reclaiming our Voices, Our Worth, and Our World

Saturday, October 22, 2016 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

For parents, future parents, caregivers, family advocates, and anyone else who wishes to deepen their understanding of intergenerational care.

Parents and caregivers do crucial, complicated, artful work. We give and protect life. We cultivate human potential. And the decisions we make on a daily basis are, quite literally, choices about how to evolve our species. So why do so many of us feel isolated, overworked, judged, unappreciated, depleted, or downright invisible? In this interactive webinar, we who give so much will slow down, and open to receiving. We’ll call back some of the scattered pieces of ourselves, and investigate our true worth. We’ll learn about historical legacies of domination and discrimination that wrote caregiving out of our economy and erased it from public life, and we’ll share strategies for building a society that values nurturing and thrives on partnership.

You’ll connect with parents and advocates from around the world, and share links to exciting caregiver movements and collaborations that you can follow as they grow. You will practice speaking your voice, articulating your value, and asking for what you need – from yourself, your community, and your world.

Registrants will receive:
· Access to the interactive, live 2-hour online program with Kate O’Rourke
· A recording of the live session to replay
· A resource list with links to caregiver movements and organizations that support and empower parents
· Caring Economy Fast Fact Sheets for Caregivers
