Join Domestic Workers and Farmworkers in stopping sexual assault and harassment. We are united in power to ensure that workplace abuse will no longer be ignored or overlooked.
There are millions of farmworkers, nannies, housecleaners, and home care workers who make it possible for us to put food on the table and go to work knowing that our homes and families are in good hands.
Yet sexual harassment is commonplace at their jobs. There’s no HR department that domestic workers or farm workers can report their harassment to. No spotlight or microphones in front of them to share their story. And few laws on the books that actually protects these women from harassment and exploitation.
We say no more!
All of us should feel safe at work, whether its on a movie set, in the home, or in the fields. This means that we must feel safe speaking up about sexual harassment and assault and be supported, financially or otherwise, after we do so. We need new workplace laws that protect all of us--no exceptions or loopholes.
On April 24 the National Domestic Workers Alliance and the National Farmworker Women's Alliance will be mobilizing in Washington, D.C. to tell Congress that we need laws that protect all of us. Will you join us?

At NDWA, we’re taking action to stop harassment in the workplace for all domestic workers. We're working with employers, lawmakers, and advocates all over the country to:
Close legal loopholes so that workplace harassment and abuse is illegal in every workplace – no exceptions.
Make it simple and safe for domestic workers to report abuse and file complaints.
Provide culturally appropriate resources and funding for domestic workers who make complaints.
Educate employers – change starts at home. If you employ a domestic worker, let her know her rights. Ask her if she feels safe and respected. Listen to her. Believe her.
