The National Domestic Workers Alliance (www.domesticworkers.org) organizes domestic workers in the United States for respect, recognition and labor standards. We work to guarantee labor protections for domestic workers by winning legislation at the state level, pushing for regulatory changes at the national level, through the International Labor Organization at the global level, and elevating domestic workers as key leaders in building a powerful movement for social and global justice. NDWA formed in 2007 at the US Social Forum and currently represents 60+ affiliates, chapters and individual workers across the country.
We Dream in Black (WeDIB) is an initiative of the NDWA that organizes Black domestic workers across the diaspora, and builds our capacity to shape a new economy and a new democracy for all of us. WeDIB works with existing member organizations of the NDWA, and initiates new organizing projects in regions that have high concentrations of Black domestic workers. Our existing membership is in Georgia (NDWA Atlanta Chapter), North Carolina (NDWA NC Chapter), Florida (Miami Workers Center), Massachusetts (Matahari), and New York (NDWA NY Chapter). “We Dream in Black” is hiring an organizer to help expand our North Carolina organizing strategy to build a voice for Black domestic workers. The overarching goals of our “We Dream in Black” Worker Organizing Program include:
