Job Title: We Dream in Black Georgia Organizer

Position: Full time

FLSA Status: Exempt

Salary: $71,070 to $74,316 DOE

Reports To: Georgia Organizing Director

Location: Georgia

The National Domestic Workers Alliance (www.domesticworkers.org) organizes domestic workers in the United States for respect, recognition and labor standards. We work to guarantee labor protections for domestic workers by winning legislation at the state level, pushing for regulatory changes at the national level, through the International Labor Organization at the global level, and elevating domestic workers as key leaders in building a powerful movement for social and global justice. NDWA formed in 2007 at the US Social Forum and currently represents 75 local affiliates and chapters, plus thousands of individual workers across the country.

We Dream in Black (WeDIB) is an initiative of the NDWA that organizes Black domestic workers across the diaspora, and builds our capacity to shape a new economy and a new democracy for all of us. WeDIB works with existing member organizations of the NDWA, and initiates new organizing projects in regions that have high concentrations of Black domestic workers. Our existing membership is in Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, Pennsylvania, and New York. “We Dream in Black” Georgia is hiring two organizers to help expand our Georgia strategy to build a voice for Black domestic workers and care workers in the state. These two organizers will have responsibilities to support and grow the membership in GA’s Middle Georgia region (Macon area) and another potential new site in Southern Georgia.

The overarching goals of our “We Dream in Black” Worker Organizing Program include:

  • Grow a network of Black domestic workers who can lead within a movement for a new economy and a new democracy;

  • Explore new partnerships that can increase fertile ground for powerful victories for Black women workers;

  • Build leadership and increase the skill set of emerging black leaders to uplift and address the issues faced by Black communities.

The Georgia chapter has a staff of 3, and is part of the NDWA Field Team.
