“Women's rights are human rights, and so are immigrant’s and children’s. We're all American and for me that's what this march is about. We need to show the power we have as grassroots movements. I need to create change for my family and community, for the world.” - Ezzie, Colorado Domestic Worker
Exclusive: New York- Tomorrow, Ezzie is joining NDWA and hundreds of domestic workers for the historic Women’s March on Washington. We are marching together to show the Trump administration that our lives, as women, women of color, Muslims, LGBT, immigrants and mothers, should be respected. All of us will be vulnerable under this new administration. More than ever, we need to come together to defend democracy at its very core — to ensure that everyone is treated with dignity and fairness.

If you’re attending the march, join us! We’ll be meeting at Garfield Park, at the intersection of 3rd and G St SE, at 9AM.

If you can’t make it to D.C. this weekend, there are several ways to stand with us. Join a local march or follow us on Twitter and Facebook for live coverage.

And during the Women’s March this Saturday, join our virtual march for dignity and justice using hashtags #DWDignity and #WhyIMarch. Tell us what you’d march for, and why.

You can also share our meme on Twitter and Facebook to let your friends and family know you are standing with domestic workers, and all those marching for human dignity.

“As an individual and an immigrant, being in the march is so relevant for me. We live in such dangerous times for women, people of color, and people with disabilities. It's an opportunity to bring together different groups and communities.” Said Tatiana, a domestic worker employer with NDWA sister organization, Hand in Hand.

We march together for a fair and just democracy for all of us. We will move forward, not backward. We hope you can join us this Saturday, and if you’re in D.C. we hope to see you there!

-All of us at the National Domestic Workers Alliance
