As we reflect on the victories gained by domestic workers worldwide in 2022, it’s clear these achievements have been realized because of the relentless efforts and campaigns of our affiliates. Locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, our affiliates have led advocacy and awareness-raising campaigns on C189, C190, and other legal improvements. They’ve led workshops and capacity building trainings in everything from paralegal work and finance management to digital and communication skills, to labour rights and union organizing, to leadership and mental health, and to xenophobia and human trafficking.
Domestic workers have used these skills to recruit new members, interact with government officials, help change policy
and law, get stories in the news and on social media, increase solidarity between grassroots organizations, strengthen
other alliances, and rescue migrant domestic workers in need.
