Join us as we march to demand that domestic workers rights be recognized and respected, and help us put an end to the diplomatic immunity that allows employers to abuse us with impunity! March for justice for Marichu Baoanan, a domestic worker who was trafficked to the United States by her employer, a UN Diplomat – and help us demand rights and respect for all domestic workers!
