At NDWA, we are working toward a beautiful vision. We are working toward a day when our work–and all work–will be fully valued and respected.
We want to make sure that children, the elderly and people with disabilities have the care and support that they need. We want to bring an end to racism, sexism, classism, xenophobia, ableism, and any other attacks on our communities. We want an economy and democracy that will work for all. To win this vision, we must work together to build an alliance that is healthy and unified and that is able to project our collective power.
We are making our vision a reality by coming together and building power.
Domestic workers through NDWA have come together in New York, California, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Oregon, New Mexico, Illinois, Nevada, Seattle and Philadelphia to win new rights and protections for domestic workers. In 2015, our members won the right to minimum wage and overtime pay for home care workers across the country. In 2019, we introduced the National Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, which would ensure rights and dignity for all domestic workers across the country and launched Alia, a tech platform built by domestic workers so we can get benefits like paid time off.
