National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA)

The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) is the nation’s leading voice for dignity and fairness for the millions of domestic workers in the United States, most of whom are women.

Every day, across the nation, millions of domestic workers — most of whom are women — care for the things families value the most: children, homes, parents and neighbors. The care they provide makes all other work possible for millions of families in the United States.

Domestic work is an act of love. “When I work with my clients I say to myself: I am going to make a difference.” Maria, domestic worker from California.

In this episode, we chat with Barbara, the National Organizer for the National Domestic Workers Alliance. I really enjoyed diving into this conversation with Barbara and was honored to share my microphone with her as she shed a light on the critical role that domestic workers in our country play as well as the support that is most needed in advocating for their protections and recognition across our country today. Barbara illustrates the ways in which listeners can make a difference in their own communities by helping give domestic workers a voice and support the leadership potential each individual has.

The NDWA has 60+ affiliate organizations across the country in 36 cities and 17 states. There is much work that remains to be done when it comes to dignity, fairness and respect for domestic workers.
