Grassroots Innovation

Atlanta Chapter

Nannies, Housekeepers and Homecare Workers are organizing for better pay, and for dignity and respect in the workplace. As the Atlanta Chapter of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, we are building power through leadership development, strategic campaigns and alliance building. Our campaigns include minimum wage and overtime for homecare workers, a $15 federal minimum wage, and Medicaid Expansion in Georgia. We offer regular job skills and know-your-rights trainings, and a Health Referral Program for members.

Dorothy Bolden Fellowship

The Dorothy Bolden Fellowship is a new program of the National Domestic Workers Alliance inspired by Ai-jen Poo’s MacArthur Foundation Fellowship award in 2014. The MacArthur Fellowship award was a tremendous honor, recognizing the important role domestic workers and caregivers play in shaping the growing movement for equity and democracy in America. The funds from the MacArthur Fellowship will be used to to support the continuous development of new leaders among domestic workers and caregivers for our movement to strengthen this work and its impact.
