Contribute to the National Domestic Workers Alliance

Everyday, over 2.5 million nannies, house cleaners, and care workers do the work of caring and cleaning in our homes.  Domestic workers are the nannies that take care of our children, the house cleaners that bring order to our home, and the care workers that ensure that our loved ones can live with dignity and independently. Domestic workers are majority women, mostly immigrant and women of color.

Founded in 2007, The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) works for respect, recognition, and inclusion in the labor protections offered to traditionally employed Americans.

The money you donate to the Coronavirus Care Fund will provide immediate financial support for domestic workers, and enable them to stay home and healthy — protecting themselves, their families and their communities while slowing the spread of the Coronavirus.
