The California Domestic Workers Coalition (CDWC) is a coalition of grassroots domestic worker organizations and their supporters from the labor, faith, domestic employer, women’s rights and other grassroots communities, who are working to build the leadership and political power of domestic workers.  advance the rights of domestic workers. Domestic workers 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 ensure that statewide laws and agencies protect domestic workers from abuse. We work to inspire all Californians to uphold the dignity of domestic workers inside and outside of our homes.
