Domestic Workers Build Bridges, Close Gaps, Gain Rights

Myrtle’s Book Launch

In January 2023, our first president and founding mother left this world. Her place in our hearts and in the movement is indispensable. As we move towards the 4th congress, we build on her legacy and life.

On October 5, we will have a book launch in her honor in the historic city of Bruges. The book, titled “Labor and Love: The Life of Myrtle Witbooi” is a biography written by her longtime friend, Jennifer Fish. It captures the history of her long service to the movement for domestic workers’ rights.
