We are thrilled to announce this year's guest speaker--Silvia González!
Silvia González is a mother and has been an immigrant domestic worker for about 15 years. Silvia has combined her work of cleaning houses with work as a staff member of Casa Latina for the last five years. This helps her see the real needs of her compañerxs domestic workers and to make sure that their voices can be heard and that changes can be achieved in this labor sector. Silvia has also been part of the Board of Directors of the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) for three years, where they are currently working on the Bill of Rights for domestic workers at the national level and the launch of Alia (portable benefits* for workers
who clean houses). Silvia played a very active role in the campaign to pass the bill of rights at the local Seattle level as an organizer for domestic workers at Casa Latina, Silvia is currently one of the co-presidents of Domestic Workers Standard board. We’re super excited to amplify this work and to be working with such incredible communities.
