The National Domestic Workers Alliance (www.domesticworkers.org) organizes domestic workers in the United States for respect, recognition and labor standards. We work to guarantee labor protections for domestic workers by winning legislation at the state level, pushing for regulatory changes at the national level, through the International Labor Organization at the global level, and elevating domestic workers as key leaders in building a powerful movement for social and global justice. The Alliance formed in 2007 at the US Social Forum and currently represents 65 affiliates, 4 chapters and a growing membership base of domestic workers throughout the U.S.
In the spring of 2019, the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) launched a new organizing project in Santa Clara & San Mateo Counties to engage thousands of domestic workers who work and live in the region. The project is currently staffed by our California Organizer and a committee of dedicated worker leaders. The project is now in an exciting period of growth and seeks a bilingual (Spanish/English) Field Organizer to continue to build domestic worker power in California. The ideal candidate is a collaborative team player with excellent outreach skills who is driven and able to function in a fast-paced work environment.
This position will be part of NDWA’s field, membership and organizer teams. Locally, they will work with and support our current CA Organizer. In addition, this position will work in close coordination and collaboration with partner organizations such as the California Domestic Workers Coalition (CDWC) and other allies and supporters in the state.
Women, People of Color, People with Disabilities and LGBTQ people, and people with direct personal experience to domestic work are strongly urged to apply. Applications will only be accepted electronically. Please submit a cover letter, resume, and writing sample to: https://domesticworkers.bamboohr.com/jobs/view.php?id=130
