Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Caregivers do crucial work, but often feel exhausted, isolated, & invisible. How can we build stronger support networks & tap into our tremendous economic & political power? Using principles of popular education - everyone teaches, everyone learns - we'll engage in thought-provoking games, storytelling, & brainstorming.
