Justice 4 Domestic Workers – long time One Billion Rising activists and organizers in the UK – is a campaigning group calling for justice and rights for Britain’s sixteen thousand foreign domestic workers. In April 2012 – the government introduced a “tied visa” regime which prevents domestic workers from changing employers. This has led to greatly increased economic, physical and even sexual abuse happening behind closed doors across the UK. J4DW are calling on the government to repeal these dangerous laws and restore rights for all domestic workers in the UK.
J4DW also provides educational and community activities for domestic workers – including English language lessons, drama and art classes, and employment advice, and mount rescues for domestic workers stuck with abusive employers.
J4DW lead the One Billion Rising events for domestic workers in the UK.
To coincide with One Billion Rising 2017 Campaign Launch, the latest Workshop with Justice For Domestic Workers UK explored themes on Solidarity against Exploitation. The J4DWUK team also danced the OBR ‘Break The Chain’ (Music by Tena Clark and Tim Heintz) Dance!
