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 Statewide Organizer

CDWC is looking for an experienced organizer who is ambitious about building grassroots power for immigrant women workers. The Statewide Organizer will drive the field and campaign organizing for the coalition’s statewide advocacy work to expand and enforce the rights of domestic workers. 

The Statewide Organizer will work closely with the Director of the Coalition, the Associate Director, and the Campaigns Manager to develop and drive the campaign organizing strategy of the coalition. The Statewide Organizer will invest deeply in the Coalition’s affiliate organizing staff and worker leaders to advance the coalition’s goals to build the base, leadership, and power of domestic workers across California, educate and organize legislative targets toward policy wins for immigrant women workers, and to build and strengthen movement alliances.
