Domestic Workers: The Invisible Wheels that Empower Our Economy—A Photo Exhibition by Mario Quiroz

The Public Library of Brookline, Coolidge Corner Branch, 31 Pleasant St., Brookline, MA 02446

Co-hosted by Brazilian Immigrant Center and the Boston Workmen's Circle Acting for Economic Justice Commitee.

Brookline has been home to men and women who had a decisive influence in the history of the city, the nation and the world. Our community's accomplishments are possible because behind great people there's somebody taking care of our families and homes.
 
Unfortunately, many times, domestic workers are exploited due to a lack of knowledge about ther rights. Their work takes place behind closed doors, and often, their isolation is a source of abuse and unfairness. Following the passage of the state's Domestir Cowkers' Bill of Rights in July 2014, we are one step closer to full and real dignity for all domestic workers. Join us as we explore the invisible faces of the people who help the Massachusetts economy move forward.
 
On exhibit through Fri., Oct. 31. Join us for the opening reception on Thurs., Oct. 9! Click here for more info.
 

AFEJ has supported the campaign to win important rights for Domestic Workers this past year with the passage of a State Bill this past summer. We are excited to continue that work with an upcoming event and action. AFEJ has also submitted a Town of Brookline Resolution to encourage greater community awareness and education about Domestic Workers rights which will go before Town Meeting in mid-November.
