The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) is the nation’s leading voice for respect, recognition and labor standards for domestic workers. Through leadership development, strategic campaigns and alliance building, we are building a powerful movement for social and global justice. The Alliance formed in 2007 at the US Social Forum and currently represents over 60 affiliates in more than 30 cities. Since then, NDWA’s staff leadership has played key roles in national intersectional movements centering women’s rights, immigrant rights, and racial justice. In the last several years, the organization and its members have appeared in a wide variety of media outlets including the New York Times, the Washington Post, Buzzfeed, Vox, InStyle, and many others.
NDWA seeks an experienced Media Relations Director to develop and implement strategic press strategy with the goal of raising the visibility of the care workforce, NDWA, and its principal spokespeople to advance NDWA’s strategic priorities. The Director would strategize on national organizing and policy campaigns and develop staff and member spokespeople across new and traditional media outlets, including print, digital, TV, and radio. The Media Relations Director will be part of the communications team, working together to shift stereotypes and perceptions of domestic workers, amplify our core narrative and brand, and offer compelling humanizing and intersectional narratives to tell a new story of labor, gender, and race/ethnicity in our country.
The Media Relations Director reports to NDWA’s Communications Director, and manages press strategists and relevant media consultants.
