California Domestic Worker Coalition
Founded in 2006, the California Domestic Worker Coalition is the state’s leading voice for the 200,000 of domestic workers in California, most of whom are women. The Coalition is comprised of 13 membership-based affiliate organizations of over 5,000 nannies, housekeepers and caregivers for the elderly. Their mission is to empower domestic workers to come out of the shadows through community organizing, grassroots action, leadership training, and working to establish statewide guidelines that protect them from abuse and exploitation. The coalition believes workers deserve basic labor protections and will continue to work until all are treated with the dignity and respect, and will act collectively to achieve just and equitable employment.
