Save the date! Caring Force Rally is April 10
Mark your calendars: The Seventh Annual Caring Force State House Rally and Lobby Day is scheduled for Tuesday, April 10, 2018.
More than 500 members of The Caring Force have come together at the State House for each of the last six years to advocate and educate state lawmakers about the most pressing issues in the Commonwealth's human services sector.
Rally day features speakers from across the sector, including direct service professionals, clients and other stakeholders; as well as the annual presentation of the Caring Bear Award to our legislative champions. Rally participants then fan out for a lobby day to meet with their local legislators.
The Caring Force, which will hit 25,000 members by the end of December, is planning for 2018 to be a year of action in support of legislation for a student loan repayment program and fair pay for comparable work, two items on the Providers’ Council’s pro-workforce legislative agenda. In addition to the rally, TCF is launching a Will You Care? campaign as well. Check www.thecaringforce.org for updates.
Rally details and registration will be available in early 2018, but mark your calendars today!
