Grassroots Policy Advocacy And The California Domestic Worker Bill Of Rights, Hina Shah

Publications

Recent victories in domestic workers rights are a result of grassroots, worker-led campaigns to change the cultural value of domestic work and fundamentally question why the law treats these workers differently from other workers. Building visibility through worker leadership and broad-based coalitions, the domestic work campaigns have succeeded in gaining more equal treatment under the law. This is the story of the California campaign and the Golden Gate University Women’s Employment Rights Clinic’s role in the campaign.
