Position Summary: 

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 culture change work, and by 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 local affiliate organizations, 7 local NDWA-run chapters, and a growing number of domestic workers in our national membership association.

 

The primary focus of the National Field Manager’s work will be to support and coordinate the participation and leadership of a group of NDWA’s local organizations in campaigns, actions and events, and capacity building programs. NDWA chapters, affiliates, and members are involved in numerous municipal, state, and national campaigns related to raising standards for domestic workers, winning public investment in the care sector, immigrant rights, civic engagement, and other issues that are priorities for NDWA. In addition, the National Field Manager will be the point person responsible for ongoing communication with the local organizations in their group.

  • Represent NDWA in relevant local or national coalitions with partner organizations. 
  • Work with the rest of the NDWA field team and national campaign staff to plan and execute in person and digital actions and engagement of domestic workers and organizations in their cohort to advance campaigns. 
  • Contribute content for the weekly bilingual NDWA newsletter and support with facilitation of the monthly domestic worker webinars.
  • Identify and recruit new potential affiliate organizations to NDWA.
  • Work with NDWA’s 501c4 sister organization - Care in Action - to identify and coordinate domestic worker volunteers from the affiliates in their cohort for civic engagement opportunities like candidate forums.
