The National Domestic Workers Alliance invites you to join us for Making History, a celebration of domestic worker organizing, past and present. Our event features the premiere screening of the new short documentary film Demanding Justice: A History of Domestic Workers; launch of the first ever digital timeline of domestic worker history; and the unveiling of a series of original portraits of domestic worker “movement ancestors.”
Marking the week that movement ancestor Dorothy Bolden was born, we will celebrate her legacy and visionary leadership that built the foundation for domestic worker organizing today. This event is the culmination of a three-year collaboration between NDWA and activist-scholars Jennifer Guglielmo, Michelle Joffroy, and Diana Sierra Becerra at Smith College. The history timeline, and accompanying curriculum, are putting domestic worker history into domestic workers’ hands, and bringing to light the rich traditions of domestic worker organizing for a more just economy and democracy.
Come be inspired by the domestic worker movement of the past, and hear from domestic worker leaders who are making history and transforming this work today.
