On November 8th, three Domestic Workers United members and DWU's Outreach Coordinator, Joycelyn Gill-Campbell, met for a cross cultural exchange with a five-person delegation from Israel and Mr. Christopher King from the US Department of Education and Cultural Affairs. The objective of this exchange was to introduce the visitors to America's ethnic and cultural diversity, examine demographic trends in the US, and explore diversity in the media.
DWU members described the mission of Domestic Workers United to the visitors and shared about the different ways that DWU empowers its members to stand up and fight for their rights. They outlined DWU's outreach strategy and ongoing efforts to implement the Domestic Workers' Bill of Rights, including the legal services offered to members suffering abuse and exploitation.
It was a great day of sharing and learning about each other's work.
