Transforming Domestic Work Series

Black Domestic Workers Fight for a Minimum Wage in the 1970s

In the final workshop of We Dream in Black’s Transforming Domestic Work Series, we will be highlighting some important strategies and learnings from the historic campaign that amended the Fair Labor Standards Act in the 1970s. Domestic workers’ organizing in the 1970s brought their labor into mainstream social and political space and showed the world that household labor is essential. This Transforming Domestic Work series aims to educate, agitate and inspire domestic workers to take action on some of the most pressing issues in the domestic work industry. Join us on Tuesday, January 26 at 7pm ET/6pm CT/5pm MT/4pm PT.

This call is part of a series with our friends at the National Employment Law Project (NELP) as part of making our Unbossed Agenda a reality by truly transforming our work and lives.
