The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) and generative somatics (gs) are thrilled to share a comprehensive report on the impact and effectiveness of NDWA’s SOL (Strategy Organizing Leadership) Initiative, coordinated in collaboration with gs and Social Justice Leadership. Read the full report .

Launched in 2011, SOL was a two—year movement—building training program for NDWA member organizations. The initiative worked to transform individual and organizational leadership and capacity for local organizing and movement building for respect, recognition,
and labor standards for domestic workers and to build a powerful movement for social and global justice.

Sixty domestic workers and organizers from across the country participated in transformative leadership development, and training in transformative organizing and base building. This comprehensive capacity building program is a model with the potential to deepen, strengthen, and reshape the culture of social justice  organizing – integrating personal, community and social change.

The evaluation and report, Transforming Our Lives, Transforming Movement Building: Lessons from the National Domestic Workers Alliance Strategy – Organizing – Leadership (SOL) Initiative, was produced by the University of Southern California’s Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE).
