Since our establishment on October 12, 2012, we have worked towards our goal of empowering domestic workers in San Antonio, Texas and its surroundings. Our 168 members include women who clean houses, care for children, and provide for the sick and elderly in their homes.
Our organization's work began at the bus, while we were on our way to our jobs and we were hearing the painful stories of the abuses that domestic workers faced every day. Low pay, long hours, psychological and physical abuse, and even sexual assault. Through a survey, we identified the needs and concerns of local domestic workers.
If you are a domestic worker in the Texas area, sign up to become a member of Domesticas Unidas.
