From organizing nannies on New York City playgrounds 15 years ago, NDWA has built a powerful movement, gained incredible local and federal policy victories, and shifted the national conversation on domestic workers. All of this was possible by centering and caring for the needs, dignity, and essential humanity of one of the most essential, yet invisible working communities — domestic workers.
Now, we are propelling towards the future with big, bold ideas and an ambitious agenda. The 15th Anniversary will uplift the movement this community created and build on the momentum of recent wins to propel our vision for shared progress into the future.
The Future is Us – Celebrating 15 years of NDWA
On September 16, our members, partners, allies and supporters will convene in Washington D.C. for a joyful celebration of the strength and leadership of our worker members and the transformative partnerships that made 15 years of impact possible.
Our celebration will include interactive experiences like a visual timeline composed of images and videos from the past 15 years, a live mural painting, as well as musical performances and awards to honor the champions who helped to grow our movement from conversations on a playground into a powerful political force.
We welcome you to join us as we recognize and commemorate the work and the wins that NDWA has achieved over the last 15 years, all while setting the stage for big dreams, bold visions, and bright futures ahead.

The 2022 National Congress will take place from September 17 to 18 in Washington, DC. The Congress will bring together representatives from each of NDWA’s local affiliates and chapters across the country in order to strengthen our strategies to transform domestic work and affirm our vision and priorities for the next 5 years. While we’re together, we’ll also be lifting up NDWA’s wins for domestic workers and contributions to broader movements.
Participants will attend plenaries and breakout sessions to talk about our core strategies, discuss and inform our national policy agenda and campaign priorities, and elect the 2022-2024 NDWA Board of Directors.
