California Domestic Workers Coalition

Organization Description

The California Domestic Workers Coalition (CDWC) is a coalition of grassroots domestic worker organizations and their supporters from the labor, faith, domestic employer, women and other grassroots communities, who are working to advance the rights of domestic workers. Domestic workers make all other work possible. They are the housecleaners, nannies, caregivers, cooks, and gardeners who care for our loved ones and our homes. In California, there are approximately 300,000 domestic workers. An estimated 2 million households hire workers to support their everyday lives – yet domestic work is too often undervalued and invisibilized. We have come together as a statewide network to build the leadership and political power of domestic workers and to ensure that statewide laws and agencies protect domestic workers from abuse. Finally, we work to inspire all Californians to uphold the dignity of domestic workers inside and outside of our homes.

About the Communications Manager

CDWC is looking for a Communications Manager to lead the coalition’s strategic communications efforts to uplift the dignity and rights of Domestic Workers in California through centering and amplifying the powerful voices of domestic worker leaders and the stories that shape our programs and campaigns. 

The Communications Manager will work under the supervision of the Associate Director and in close collaboration with the Director of the Coalition, the Campaigns Manager, and the Social and Digital Media Organizer.
