Please join Stamps Gallery in partnership with Michigan United for a screening of CareForce One Travelogues, a documentary by artist Marisa Morán Jahn about the fastest growing workforce in America: caregivers. The film will be introduced by the filmmaker followed by a panel discussion featuring local care workers and care worker organizers, moderated by Michigan United, Universal Family Care Organizer, Oriana Powell. The event will conclude with closing remarks from Powell and Michigan United Michigan Caring Majority Campaign Director, Laura DePalma, on current advocacy initiatives that exist around these issues and action steps for moving forward. 

CareForce One Travelogues features artist Marisa, her son (Choco), and their buddy Anjum traveling in their car, the CareForce One, seeking solutions to the nation’s care crisis. The team sets off in New York City, meeting up with domestic employers and domestic workers (nannies, housekeepers, caregivers for the elderly/​sick/​disabled) along the way, and culminating in Miami. Mixing levity with hard-hitting stories around immigration, the legacies of slavery, racial discrimination, and more, the CareForce One is a road movie that invites its viewers to laugh and cry at the same time. Supported by Sundance, Tribeca Film Institute, National Endowment for the Arts, and more.
