Rebuilding with Care: The Infrastructure of Equity

Rebuilding with Care: The Infrastructure of Equity

Rebuilding Care with Equity at the Center

I love the plenary titles from the recently concluded virtual gathering “Constructing a New Social Compact”. I wish I could have attended the event. Regardless, I’m adding these titles to my framing toolkit.

I have been reading the infrastructure bill and find so much of it good and important. The construction of care work as infrastructure is one of the most creative social policy moves the democrats have made in a long time, in my humble estimation. It is the kind of thing that, if it happens, could actually work.

I agree. I’ve picked up and amplified this framing of care, combining it with interdependence.

And I’ve been on the equity literacy train for awhile.

Framing a rebuilt care as “The Infrastructure of Equity” appeals to me. I like it.

I recently added these lines on care to my “Just Sayin’” collection of DEI quotes.

I’m considering a couple more:

  • Rebuild care with equity at the center.
  • Care is the infrastructure of equity.
