This May 1st, International Workers Day, domestic workers across California took to the streets to demand dignity, health, and safety. From Santa Rosa to San Jose, San Francisco to Los Angeles and San Diego, domestic workers marched together to lift up the call to Governor Newsom that now is the time for him to support the Health and Safety for All Workers Act and finally end the exclusion of women of color workers from critical Cal/OSHA protections.Check out pictures from our members on the streets across California!
