Roma and Domestic Worker Ordinance Celebration

PRESENTED BY: Meaningful Movies at UHeights
3:00 PM, Sunday, December 1, 2019 PST
Location: UHeights (click for map)

Join Hand in Hand and Casa Latina for a screening of the film “Roma” and a celebration of the Seattle Domestic Workers Ordinance.

“Roma” is Academy Award winner Alfonso Cuarón’s film that follows a year in the life of a domestic worker in Mexico City in 1970. Following the film, we will have a short discussion about the importance of domestic work and how Seattle’s new Domestic Workers Ordinance is uplifting workers’ rights that have been too long left in the shadows.

Seattle is on the forefront of bringing domestic work out of these shadows with passage and implementation of the Seattle Domestic Workers Ordinance, which creates new workplace protections for nannies, house cleaners, gardeners, home attendants, and more.
