Families Belong Together Digital Organizer
- Position Type
- Full Time
Families Belong Together, a campaign of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, is an immigrant justice campaign and loose coalition of nearly 250 organizations to end family separation and detention, reunite families, fight for immigrant justice, and challenge anti-immigrant racism through organizing, storytelling, and earned media.
We take a power-building approach to build a mass constituency by centering organizing and leveraging rapid response moments to ensure widespread press coverage of the abuses of the government against children and families. Our work requires a multi-pronged response that includes persuasion work, culture change, storytelling, distributed action, movement generosity, and serving as digital, comms and organizing expertise for our partners across the country. FBT’s unique approach—digitally-focused rapid response with a positive, values based frame paired with organizing and power-building—is key to achieving our ultimate goal: ending child detention and family separation and doing right by the families that have been harmed.

The National Domestic Workers Alliance, where Families Belong Together is based, organizes domestic workers in the United States for respect, recognition and labor standards. We work to guarantee labor protections for domestic workers by winning legislation at the state level, pushing for regulatory changes at the national level, through the International Labor Organization at the global level, and elevating domestic workers as key leaders in building a powerful movement for a more just economy and democracy.
NDWA was founded in 2007 by 13 local domestic worker organizing projects around the country. By 2016, the alliance had grown to include 60 affiliate organizations and 3 chapters. In 2016, we launched our membership association in order to dramatically increase our scale, power and sustainability. While most of our core leaders are engaged as leaders in NDWA affiliate organizations and chapters, the vast majority of our members will be workers who we engage with remotely and online.
