We Belong Together is a campaign of the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA). NDWA organizes domestic workers in the United States for respect, recognition and inclusion in labor protections. We work to guarantee protections by winning legislation at the state level, pushing for policy changes at the national level, through the International Labor Organization at the global level, and elevating domestic workers as key leaders in building a powerful movement for social and global justice. The Alliance formed in 2007 and currently represents 68 affiliates and chapters in 18 states, and a growing membership of women around the country.
In 2010, NDWA launched We Belong Together (WBT) which unlocks the unique power of women working together to create a more inclusive society. Driven by the leadership of immigrant women across the country, we bring pro-immigrant women together under one banner in the venues in which they can have the greatest impact. WBT works with immigrant rights, women’s and racial justice organizations to make sure that gender is amplified when considering immigration policy and immigration is included as a women’s issue.
Given the increasing threats towards immigrants, We Belong Together aims to counter the exclusion and criminalization of immigrants and create more inclusive norms by: mobilizing a core of committed women from various communities to take action together; creating highly visible cultural champions, representing immigrants and those not directly affected by immigration, to stoke greater demand for change; and forcing key public officials to choose a side with respect to immigration policy.
NDWA is seeking an energetic and results-oriented We Belong Together Movement Building Organizer to engage and activate individual women and progressive partners to fight for immigrant rights. The building blocks of our success will involve large scale activation of networks of women under a shared vision of inclusion, taking concrete actions to further local and national pro-immigrant policies and norms.
