We are the women who care for this country. We are Black, we are women of color, we are immigrants. Behind closed doors we face harassment, abuse, and discrimination.

We are uniting with women everywhere so that all workplaces are safe and dignified.

​We are unstoppable.​

Over 2 million women care for our nation's homes and families. Many of them are immigrant women and women of color.

The work supports millions of people — And yet is some of the most invisible in our economy. Nannies, housekeepers, and home healthcare workers have historically been excluded from basic labor protections. Without these protections, many workers tolerate low or no pay and abusive situations.

We organize to achieve the dignity, respect and professionalism our work deserves!

States where we've won victories for Domestic Workers

Our Board of Directors is composed primarily of domestic workers, women like:

Silvia Gonzalez

Silvia immigrated to the United States from Mexico in 2000 to provide better educational opportunities for her daughter. For the past 15 years, she has worked as a house cleaner. Sylvia has participated in many local and national campaigns to improve the working conditions and rights of domestic workers. She loves her work and takes great pride leaving her clients' homes gleaming.

She's now an active member of Casa Latina, and recently was elected to NDWA's Board of Directors by her peers.
