Join Hand in Hand and NDWA on August 12th at 8:00pm EST for a conversation between domestic employers and workers on the exclusion of domestic workers in the NYC Human Rights Law in relation with their workplace.

We'll hear about how this exclusion has impacted the lives of workers, and positive experiences when employers implement human rights values at home. You'll also learn ways to support the passage of Int 339 in NYC Council -a bill that would amend the NYC Human Rights Law to include domestic workers.

By passing Int 339, the City will be providing workers with long overdue protections against discrimination in the workplace, and coverage under the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act .

Ableism 101 Training

Ableism 101 Training

July 21, 2020, 5:00pm - July 21, 2020, 7:30pm

Online

People with disabilities experience discrimination, exclusion, and vulnerability because of the way our society devalues and dehumanizes disability – this system is called ableism. Domestic workers – especially caregivers, homecare workers and home attendants – play a critical role in providing support to people with disabilities and seniors to be able to live with dignity in their homes and communities.

Domestic workers often also develop disabilities as a result of their work. Understanding ableism and concepts of disability justice helps workers (and their employers with disabilities) better understand their shared experiences and common interest in ending ableism. Join our workshop to learn about Hand in Hand, our work to combat ableism, and the intersections across our movements for domestic workers rights and disability justice!

As employers of domestic workers, we know that the history of domestic workers rights are uniquely tied to the legacy of slavery and anti-Black racism. In order to build a care infrastructure that honors the dignity of all people, regardless of race, class, age, ability, gender, gender identity, and sexuality, we must deepen our understanding of systems of oppression—the root of these inequities.

This means intentionally working to dismantle white supremacy, having a deep anti-racism analysis, being aware of our personal bias and privilege, and centering equity and inclusion in our work and our mission.

Please RSVP to join Hand in Hand: the Domestic Employers Network and Caring Across Generations for our first Anti-Racism 101 training on Thursday, June 25 at 7 pm Eastern/4 pm Pacific.

This training will be the first in a series of events and trainings we are holding for us all to learn and change together.
