Domestic Workers United
October 11, 2009
If you're going to be in New York City on October 29, think about stopping by the Domestic Workers United (DWU) Donor Campaign Celebration. DWU is an organization of nannies, housekeepers, and elderly caregivers in New York working for respect and fair labor standards for domestic workers. In less than a decade, the DWU has built a membership of over 2,300 workers and won almost a half a million dollars in unpaid wages for domestic workers.
DWU has recently launched a campaign to recruit "donor members" to help sustain their work through these tough economic times. The donor campaign celebration will be held on October 29 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at the offices of SEIU Local 32BJ, 101 Avenue of the Americas, 22nd Floor. (A flyer with full details here.) You can use the pledge form if you'd like to help, but can't make it on the day.
