About the NDWA DMV Chapter

The NDWA Washington DC-Virginia-Maryland (DMV) Chapter organizes domestic workers for better wages and improved working conditions. We also play a lead role in local coalitions to win rights, recognition and safety for all low-wage workers. Domestic workers are the ONLY group of workers excluded from basic human rights protections in Washington DC. We’ve been organizing to win a DC Domestic Workers Bill of Rights to right that racist wrong. We also played a lead role in winning the Virginia Domestic Workers Bill of Rights — the first Domestic Worker Bill of Rights in the South!

Our multilingual membership meetings and leadership development trainings are spaces for domestic workers to build community and deepen skills to lead in our organization, our community and our domestic worker movement.

If you’re a nanny, housecleaner or homecare worker in the DMV, we invite you to join us!

DC Bill of Rights

A Domestic Workers Bill of Rights in DC would include domestic workers, many of whom regularly experience sexual harassment, wage theft, and other forms of workplace discrimination, in basic legal rights.
