The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) is the leading national voice for dignity and fairness for domestic workers in the United States. Founded in 2007, NDWA works for the respect, recognition, and inclusion in labor protections of domestic and home care workers across the country. NDWA is winning improved working conditions while building a powerful movement rooted in the human rights, dignity and equality of domestic workers, home care workers, immigrant women and Black women.
NDWA was founded in 2007 by 50 domestic workers and organizers from around the country. Our national alliance has grown from this founding group of 13 organizations to now more than 60 affiliate organizations, plus three local chapters developed by NDWA in Atlanta, Durham, and New York City, and individual members from states without affiliates or chapters to join. To date, the Alliance is comprised of more than 70,000 nannies, housekeepers, and home care workers in 44 cities and 20 states.
The National Domestic Workers Alliance seeks an energetic, highly organized and self-directed Special Assistant to provide strategic, administrative and logistical support for NDWA’s 2 Deputy Directors. One Deputy Director focuses on managing and moving NDWA’s campaign, field, communications, and innovations work forward, and the other Deputy Director oversees organizational development and our sustainability teams (Operations, HR, Finance, Legal, and Fundraising).
The Special Assistant will support the Directors in their role of advancing the organization in its strategic goals and objectives. The support will include assisting with day to day administration, logistics, scheduling, preparing materials, and tracking ongoing special projects of both deputies.
