Which lawmakers were in solidarity with seniors, people with disabilities, caregivers, and working families in 2020?
During 2020, IHSS caregivers and family child care providers served heroically as frontline, essential workers during a pandemic. Yet we once again had to defend IHSS from budget cuts and saw thousands of child cares close due to the pandemic. More than ever, we needed champions in state government that saw our value and helped us stay safe and do our work. Every year, UDW scores the California legislature and the governor on their support of policies that impact our members. This year, those scores not only show which of our lawmakers championed care, but which ones defended us, our clients, and our communities when it really mattered.
