Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today, we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by recommitting ourselves to the interconnected fights for economic justice and equal access to the ballot for all.

“The denial of this sacred right is a tragic betrayal of the highest mandates of our democratic tradition.”
— Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In many states across the country, there is an ongoing effort to make it harder for people of color, low-income and rural voters to cast our ballots. Several laws are taking effect this January that will have a significant impact on elections across the country – whether for voters, state agencies, local election officials, or advocacy groups.

These continued attacks aren’t a surprise: whenever communities pushed to the margins show our collective power, there are many who wish to slow down our hard-won progress.

At NDWA, we are proud to partner with our domestic worker leaders to radically reimagine how this country values women and women’s labor and to ensure that the most vulnerable among us are centered in our economy.

Voting is an important lever that we can use to create a future that works for domestic workers, caregivers, women of color, and immigrants. It’s not the only tool at our disposal, but it’s important that we all remember that our votes speak for us and our values.

“All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem.”
— Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our work is only possible because we stand on the shoulders of giants like Rev.

Our work is far from over but make no mistake: this movement is powerful. We’re fighting back and we’ll keep fighting, until our right to vote is protected, our voices are heard and we are finally given the space to live and work with dignity and respect. And we will win thanks to supporters like you.
