Update: Here are some recent uses of the artwork by CDWC:
Uses in 2021
Not sure if they ever used the version with type and design by Design Action, but heres a flyer they made using the art for new members. Please go to their website to check out their mission statement. They organize around domestic workers rights leading campaigns that increase awareness about workers rights and they organize campaigns to fight for policy changes that affect real working people, most of whom are women of color! Here’s their site.
Check out some of the other illustrations I did for them.
This work is super meaningful as I have had many domestic workers in my family. My mother cleaned houses at a point in her life and so did I. I hella respect the folks who do the work whether in homes, businesses, or institutions. And I love the fact that CDWA helps them get better pay, more respect, and together they win more rights for domestic workers. Shout out to Sabiha Basrai who managed this and Riley who did the type design.
Been working on this for a bit. Two flyers meant as outreach and informational tools that Mujeres Unidas will use for outreach. In case you didn’t know, domestic workers (Nanny’s, Maid’s, In home care givers, and more) often go without the proper pay, sick days, holidays, paid leave, and a lot of abuse. This past year California Governor Jerry Brown was forced to sign a new bill of rights guaranteeing rights to workers. Both myself and my mom have cleaned houses before and I have met many people who do this hard/honest work who are US citizens, imagine what kinds of protection you have if you are a recent immigrant or not a citizen.. Anyway, stepping down from soap box, Check out the work.
