Join us in discussing how the partnership between IPS and the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) has helped create a stronger movement for worker justice as part two of our discussion series exploring the many facets of IPS’s movement-building work.

IPS believes that dynamic social movements, equipped with cutting edge research and analysis is the key to meaningful change. Join staff from the NDWA and IPS as we present our partnership as a case study for collaboration between a movement-building group and a research and policy advocacy organization. We’ll discuss how a need to work together emerged, lessons learned along the way, and our ideas and plans for moving forward. Learn about some exciting upcoming campaigns around worker justice, including immigrant women workers. Come share your own stories, experiences, and ideas on cross-issue collaboration at this informal lunch conversation.

Please RSVP for this event here.
