Candidates on Caregiving

RCI works independently and with partners to advance policies, which raise awareness about the important role of caregivers, recognize their contributions, and advocate for resources to address their challenges. 

2020 Presidential Candidate Outreach

  • Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, our founder, urged family caregivers to ask the candidates running for President of the United State for their policy positions on caregiving. Read her op-ed in the Des Moines Register urging 2020 Presidential Candidates to advocate for caregivers.
  • RCI reached out to every presidential campaign team to offer technical assistance and policy advice on caregiving, respite care and long term care.
  • RCI launched the Candidates on Caregiving tracker

The tracker will be updated through the November Presidential election and was compiled from campaign websites and correspondence with campaign staff when possible.
