Care is Essential art installation on National Mall brings care stories to life, emphasizes demand to invest in care


Panels representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia will feature personal care stories from caregivers and care consumers

SEIU launched an art installation in Washington, D.C., featuring walls of art by local D.C. artists that illustrate the essential role care plays in the lives of all people. The installation is located near the Washington Monument and will be on display from Monday, Jan. 31, through Friday, Feb. 4.

Upon entering the installation, visitors will find panels representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, featuring personal care stories from caregivers and care consumers, or statistics highlighting the stark realities of care throughout the country.

The goal is to drive home how it’s vitally important that Congress pass the Build Back Better Act and make a historic investment in care and care jobs. QR codes will send visitors to the new Build Back Better calculator, which allows users to see how the Build Back Better Act would benefit them and their families.
