NDWA is building on the legacy of powerful domestic worker leaders and organizations that came before us. By studying the history of the domestic worker movement, we learn how systems of oppression have shaped the sector, how organizers in generations past have raised standards, and how our current strategies can align to meet the needs and opportunities of the moment.

A History of Domestic Work and Worker Organizing is an interactive timeline created by activist scholars Jennifer Guglielmo, Michelle Joffroy, and Diana Sierra Becerra, in collaboration with NDWA to put history into the hands of the domestic worker leaders of today.
