Interviews with participants available before and during the Women’s March
Washington, DC — On Saturday, National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) and We Belong Together will convene 200 domestic workers, immigrant women, and women of color from around the country to join the historic Women’s March on Washington. The delegation, representing thousands of nannies, housecleaners, and home care workers on the front lines of opposition to the incoming administration, will march to show that fair and dignified care work is not only a women’s issue, but a cornerstone of our democracy.
June Barrett of the Miami Workers Center, a home care worker and immigrant from Jamaica, will be among the marchers. She told the Guardian: “I’m a Black woman, I’m queer, I’m an immigrant, and everything that’s going to happen under Trump and Pence is going to affect me, perhaps adversely. I’m marching to show how powerful women are when we’re organized.”
