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 the International Labor Organization at the global level, and 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 60+ affiliates in 19 states nationally. NDWA’s sister organization, Care in Action was founded in 2014 to advance the civil rights and socio-economic well-being of domestic workers, including nannies, housekeepers, and care workers, as well as other low-income women workers, women of color and immigrant women throughout the country. Care in Action provides tools and training on civic engagement and organizing to make their voices heard.
NDWA seeks an entrepreneurial, creative, and relationship-driven Director, Individual Giving to serve as a member of the Development Team to create and implement the overall fundraising plan for individual gifts, ensuring that NDWA meets its annual goals and develops a strong financial base for the future.
