The National Domestic Workers Alliance
Jennifer started her work in movement building as an organizer at Blocks Together a membership-based direct action organization in Chicago’s Westside. For seven years, she worked on education, housing and economic justice campaigns. Besides developing and implementing campaign, she intentionally integrated communication and fundraising into her organizing to develop member leadership. In 2009, she dedicated herself full-time to fund development at Interfaith Worker Justice, worked as a fundraising consultant, and as a board member of the Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training (GIFT). She then oversaw the fund development of 10 grassroots affiliates at the Restaurant Opportunities Centers (ROC) United as the Development Director. Jennifer now serves as the National Domestic Workers Alliance’s Communications Director. She is leading the organization in developing a comprehensive communications strategy that both builds domestic worker leadership and positions NDWA as a leading voice in the intersection of immigration, labor, gender, and racial justice issues.
