The On Being Dinner Discussion: Ai-Jen Poo “This Is Our (Caring) Revolution”
Come join together as students, staff, and faculty to help make meaning, reflect on our lives, and connect with each other. Each Wednesday in April we will discuss a podcast from Krista Tippet’s On Being Project (onbeing.org.) Participants can either listen to the podcast or read the transcript.
On Wed., April 29 we will discuss Krista’s interview with Ai-Jen Poo, “This Is Our (Caring) Revolution.” Ai-jen Poo is executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and the co-director of Caring Across Generations. Her book is The Age of Dignity. Her podcast, co-hosted with Alicia Garza, is Sunstorm.
From the On Being website: “Ai-jen Poo is a next-generation labor organizer who co-founded a beautiful and muscular movement with caregivers and those who employ them: the National Domestic Workers Alliance. For over two decades, she has been reinventing policy and engaging a deep conversation that has now met its civilizational moment. This conversation was recorded before “coronavirus” was a word we all knew. But the many dimensions of the crisis now upon us have revealed Ai-jen Poo and her world of wisdom and action as teachers for our life together, in and beyond it.”
