As a mother of 4 and a domestic worker, Aida Andino is grateful for the many opportunities La Colectiva has provided for her throughout the years to support her children in Honduras. Today, she shares with us her desire for everyone to age with dignity. Join our campaign to ensure domestic workers can age with dignity! www.lacolectivasf.org/aging #LaColectivaVoices #AgingWithDignity
WE WANT TO CELEBRATE WITH YOU THE VICTORIES THAT OVER 1,000 WOMEN HAVE ACHIEVED IN OUR WOMEN’S COLLECTIVE
They are personal victories of gaining economic independence, negotiating for just wages, and redefining ourselves in our work as dignified and valuable workers. And they are communal victories, of stopping deportation buses and apartment evictions, ensuring that the police in California do their job only, and not the work of immigration law enforcement.
We are celebrating the 15th Anniversary of La Colectiva by starting a conversation about the aging of domestic workers, the care workforce that support us all, and atend r . Some of us young, others not so much, we all recognize the need to develop and discover relevant skills, new types of work, and more adequate supports for facing adversity, and aging with dignity.
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE AGING WITH DIGNITY CAMPAIGN
We recently accomplished the historic victory of SB1015, the first bill of rights in California that defends domestic workers, united with hundreds of immigrant women organized as La Colectiva, California Domestic Workers Coalition, and National Domestic Workers Alliance.
ATTENDEES, YOU ARE IN FOR A NIGHT FULL OF COMMUNITY, INSPIRATION AND VISION
