The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) is the nation’s leading voice for respect, recognition and labor standards for domestic workers. Through leadership development, strategic campaigns and alliance building, we are building a powerful movement for social and global justice. Domestic workers formed the Alliance in 2007 at the US Social Forum and it currently represents over 60 affiliates in more than 30 cities. Since then, NDWA’s staff leadership has played key roles in national intersectional movements centering women’s rights, immigrant rights, and racial justice. The organization and its members have been instrumental in winning Bill of Rights victories in 9 states and two cities and our work has been featured in a wide variety of digital media outlets including the New York Times op-docs and NowThis.
At a time of increased challenges and opportunities for working people, especially women of color, NDWA seeks a Social Media Director. This new position will develop and implement social media strategy to grow and engage NDWAs supporter base online with the goal of building a broad universe of followers and supporters ready to engage on the issues that matter to our membership and movement to advance NDWA’s strategic priorities.
The Social Media Director will be housed within the communications team, but will work closely with our digital organizing team and other teams across the organization. The Social Media Director will develop social media strategy for promoting national and local organizing and policy campaigns, increasing the supporter base for our work, working closely with press and design staff to shift stereotypes and perceptions of domestic workers, amplify our core narrative and brand, and offer compelling intersectional narratives to tell a new story of labor, gender, and race/ethnicity in our country through our social media channels.
The Social Media Director reports to NDWA’s Communications Director.
