Equal rights for domestic workers and recognition of their occupational significance to our economy is at the heart of Domestic Workers United (DWU), an organization of Caribbean, Latina and African nannies, housekeepers, and elderly caregivers in New York. We partner with DWU to collect the voices of domestic workers in New York City as they organize for power, respect, fair labor standards, and an end to exploitation and oppression.

New York Folk Arts Digital Initiative

NY State Folk Arts Digital Initiative: Building a reservoir of traditional local knowledge, statewide is an initiative to strengthen the web presence of folk arts in New York State and to give the materials documented by folklorists across the state greater visibility and accessibility for tourists, the general public, and the communities from which these art forms are generated. It also demonstrates connections across the state through the lens of the traditional arts.
