This Mothers Day we are honored to get to build a movement with so many powerful mothers, grandmothers, tias, and daughters who provide love and care not only for their own families, but also for the homes and families where they work. And today, if you follow us on social media, you will see that we are still organizing and mobilizing, even as we celebrate and honor the mothers in our lives.
In the past month, we have pivoted, adapted and learned with many of you about how to build a policy campaign alongside worker leaders who have become frontline, essential workers during this crisis and with many who have lost their livelihoods in order to shelter in place. With support from allies, we successfully hosted a virtual launch that reached over six thousand people.We held two virtual lobby days that included meetings with 28 legislators and participation from domestic workers, employers, and allies across the state. Confronting the challenges of organizing remotely with creativity and openness, domestic worker leaders have lifted their voices to demand that now, more than ever, caregivers, house-cleaners, and nannies who care for our families and homes should have the legal right to safe and healthy workplaces, just like all other workers.
We are excited to share that SB 1257: The Health & Safety for All Workers Act will be heard in the Senate Labor Committee this Thursday, May 14.
