She is the author of the celebrated book, The Age of Dignity: Preparing for the Elder Boom in a Changing America. The conversation that we had focused around a theme of integrating healing and action. Ai-Jen told us the story of recovering from her own experiences of both harassment and assault and what an important part of her healing journey it was to get into action. She also talked about how important it was to have a community of people who could hear her story and believe her story and get into action with her to help change the conditions that so many workers like herself still face on a daily basis. She listed for us a number of different healing resources that are available out there, whether you are a domestic worker or you're anybody who is the survivor of workplace discrimination, harassment, or assault. https://metoomvmt.org/ https://www.domesticworkers.org/ info@domesticworkers.org - to get in touch directly with an organizer who can help you if you've experienced harassment or discrimination as a domestic worker  The Time's Up Legal Defense Fund  We also talked about a number of the different legislative actions that she is undertaking with the various organizations that she leads and which you can get involved in, helping to change the law to improve the lives of workers everywhere.
