Statement on Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter’s Passing


Joint Statement from National Domestic Workers Alliance, Care in Action, and Caring Across Generations on Rosalynn Carter’s Health

“As we receive the solemn news of Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter’s passing, our thoughts and deepest sympathies extend to her family during this time. Rosalynn Carter, a symbol of resilience and commitment, has been an unwavering advocate for caregivers and a visionary in reinforcing our care infrastructure. Her efforts have laid a foundation for a future where every family can depend on comprehensive and compassionate care.

Throughout her life, Rosalynn Carter has illuminated a fundamental truth that touches each of us: at some point in our lives, every single one of us will need care. Her advocacy has not only highlighted the universality of this need, but also the nobility and importance of those who provide care.

Our hearts are heavy with this news. Yet, inspired by her enduring spirit and profound words, we remain committed to the cause she championed so passionately. Rosalynn Carter famously said, ‘There are only four kinds of people in the world––those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.’ These words resonate more than ever as we reflect on her legacy and the impact of her work.

In honor of Rosalynn Carter’s extraordinary contributions, we pledge to continue advocating for a future where care is accessible, dignified, and recognized as the essential service it is. Her advocacy has been a guiding light, and we are committed to advancing this vital mission.”
