Home care workers in Colorado experience sexual harassment, assault, and discrimination on the job. This abuse occurs in isolated workplaces throughout the system, and it comes from bosses, clients, and third parties alike. While protections against this type of behavior exist, incidents often go unreported due to inaccessible reporting mechanisms, fear of retaliation, or even personal and involuntary trauma response. 

Home care workers go to their jobs every day to serve their clients in the best way possible, but when these incidents occur without consequence, both care workers and the Coloradans who rely on them suffer. To create a care industry where both workers and clients feel safe and respected, a clear and confidential reporting system must put in place for home care workers who experience sexual harassment, assault, or discrimination on the job. Additionally, care workers must have the right to the proper training to handle these incidents when they occur.

We are asking for your help to call on lawmakers to secure ALL of these rights:

Decision-Making Power
All of these rights depend on workers and their clients having the fundamental right to unite as leaders in care with the power to make decisions in how their industry is run.
