As a movement-building organization, DWU always seeks opportunities to build alliances and strategic partnerships, because we believe that by connecting our struggles to those of others, we are building a stronger movement to end oppression and exploitation for all.
Caring Across Generations
Led by the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Jobs with Justice and many other partners, the Caring Across Generations campaign offers a comprehensive solution for jobs creation, training, pathway to citizenship, fair labor standards, support for individual families to afford quality care, and an opportunity to build a movement that can change the way we care across the nation. DWU is playing an important role in the local organizing in NY to bring home this national campaign through the launch of a Care Council in partnership with ALIGN and Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice.

United Workers Congress
The members of the United Workers Congress are national networks of organizations that represent a base of workers that are either by law or by practice excluded from the right to organize in the United States. Together we are working with unions to strengthen the labor movement and the right to organize for all workers. The UWC is positioned to help the broader workers movement pivot from defense to offense—revitalizing a passion for the workers' right to organize and building a movement for rights at work to combat the republican "right-to-work" attack on worker organizing. We commit to think bigger and bolder about organizing workers in this country and around the world. Click here to learn more about the United Workers Congress.
