Caring Across Generations - a movement of 3 million people across the country uniting to ensure that all Americans have access to quality homecare - has partnered with actress Adepero Oduye (Pariah), Tony nominees Kathleen Chalfant (Wit), Josh Young (Jesus Christ Superstar), Micki Grant (Having Our Say), and filmmaker Tanya Wexler (Hysteria) to present "CARE IS...", a series of 4 video PSAs that portray moments of care that many will find familiar.
Launching on Mother's Day, the series was written in collaboration with award-winning Off Broadway playwrights Winter Miller, Alex Beech, Leila Buck and Eric Lockley, and produced by Sundance Award-winning producer Nick Bruckman (Valley of Saints).
Each video features one of the acclaimed actors performing a fictionalized story inspired by interviews conducted with the parents, grandparents, and grandchildren who power the Caring Across movement.
The video series is the first of many creative collaborations Caring Across Generations is producing with leading innovators in the arts and entertainment industry this year.
