Overview

The mission of the Massachusetts Coalition for Domestic Workers (MCDW) (massdomesticworkers.org) is to bring justice and dignity to all domestic workers in our state. Founded in 2010, MCDW was the driving force in passing the MA Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights, which established important labor standards and granted basic protections to nannies, housekeepers, and other in-home caregivers. With the passage of the Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights behind us, our focus now is the implementation of the new law and continued advocacy on behalf of domestic workers. The Coalition is currently comprised of the following organizations: the Brazilian Women's Group, the Dominican Development Center, Brazilian Worker Center, MassCOSH, and the Women’s Institute for Leadership Development.

 

MCDW is a fiscally sponsored organization of TSNE (tsne.org).
