Rights for Domestic Workers

Rights for Domestic Workers

Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and Gustavo Torres, executive director of CASA, will talk about structural changes in the job market that have resulted in many day laborers, especially among immigrants and people of color. They will focus especially on how we can help build power, respect, and fair labor standards for the 2.5 million nannies, housekeepers, and elderly caregivers in the United States. Rachel Micah-Jones, founder and executive director of CDM: Centro de los Derechos del Migrante, will moderate.

This event is part of Open Society Institute–Baltimore’s Talking About Race Series, co-sponsored by the Enoch Pratt Free Library, which continues to explore the many facets of this complex subject.
