Megan Thee Stallion joins forces with Caring Across Generations to improve the depiction of caregiving in film and television.
The 28-year-old rap star is excited to be working with Caring Across Generations, an organization that works to ensure caregivers are respected and supported by the public.
Megan, who holds a degree in health administration from Texas Southern University, said in a statement to Variety: “Nursing has played a huge role in my life.
“Growing up, I watched my grandmother take care of my great-grandmother, and she did it with love, strength and patience. As a society, we must support and celebrate our caregivers more because care is one of the most underrated jobs.
“My hope is that we can create better environments where people receiving care feel safe and secure, and caregivers feel supported and empowered. All families should have access to quality resources to provide care for those in need.”
Meanwhile, Ai-Jen Poo, executive director of Caring Across Generations, is determined to change the way caregiving is viewed and supported.
“Caring for our loved ones is one of the most important and fundamental roles in our lives, yet this work is largely invisible and unsupported, even as our society Aging and our needs growing.
“The care crisis is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and we are delighted that members of our Creative Nursing Council have a voice and bring visibility to the support we all need to help ensure people have access to parenting, paid family leave and their Aging and disability care needed to thrive.”
