Dignity for Care Workers
Ai-jen Poo is the Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Co-director of the Caring Across Generations campaign. "We call it[domestic work] the work that makes all other work possible. It’s this invisible layer of work — raising families and taking care of homes — that allows other people to go into their public lives and work, achieve, build," she said in an interview on Moyers Online.
Guardians of Waterways
Chief Caleen Sisk is the tribal and spiritual leader of the Winnemem Wintu Tribe in N. California. The Winnemem Wintu are known as the Middle Water people, their identity inextricably and spiritually linked to the McCloud River and the anadromous salmon that once thrived in the waters.
