"The Care Revolution" tells the inspiring story of the first wave of organizing by Oregon's home care workers. Grounded in extensive interviews with workers, the film explains how union representation has transformed the lives of caregivers and improved the quality of care for the people they serve.

The filmmakers Sonia De La Cruz and Bob Bussel will be joining us to take about the film and answer questions. De La Cruz is Assistant Professor, School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences at the UW Tacoma. In addition to producing several documentaries, she formerly worked as an organizer with the Teamsters Union.

Bob Bussel is a professor of history and director of the Labor Education and Research Center at the University of Oregon. Before entering the university labor education field, Bussel worked for the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union.
