Behind every person who needs care is a superhero team -- the CareForce. From our new mobile studio, the eye-catching, souped-up station wagon known as the CareForce One, we're creating and sharing augmented reality media from the front lines of a powerful movement led by caregivers fighting for domestic workers' rights, migrant dignity, and racial justice. For Creative Tech Week, the CareForce One hits the streets of NYC, turning into a pop-up storytelling venue, info hub and mini street party that brings domestic worker stories to life. Stop by for: The CareForce augmented reality experience to view and contribute your own stories about care and caregivers in your life Voices from the CareForce - featuring stories of caregivers and care-receivers. This collection of stories will help to transform personal experiences into a larger global movement that exemplifies the triumph, resiliency, and the trailblazing leadership of immigrant and minority women (and increasingly men as well). Domestic Worker Disco - Shake, shimmy, shuffle and sweep with us as we dance the CareForce Disco! Energizing and irresistible, this dance is for all body types/abilities and is collectively choreographed and performed by participants (passersby, workers, allies). Think stroller figure 8's, mop waltzing, and more!
