Domestic Workers' Rights

Domestic Workers’ Rights

SF Rising is supporting two pieces of legislation that would advance domestic workers’ rights.

First, SB 321, The Health and Safety for All Workers Act, would require Cal/OSHA to convene an advisory committee in order to create and publish for the first time the occupational health and safety guidelines specific to the domestic work industry. The COVID-19 laid bare the lack of protections for these essential workers. Let’s help secure these urgently needed health and safety guidelines so that all workers in California can feel safe and protected at work. Help us support the California Domestic Workers Coalition in passing this bill by calling or sending a letter to the governor. He has until October 10th, 2021 to sign this bill into law! Sign up to take action today.

Second, San Francisco also has a unique opportunity to pass an ordinance that would create a portable benefits program and secure paid time off for domestic workers in the city. Right now, domestic workers are entitled to sick leave, but because many of them work for multiple employers, they are unable to access that sick leave. Add your name to ask San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors to ensure that all of SF’s workers can access paid time off.

Community Redistricting

Community Redistricting

Every 10 years, after Census data is released, cities, counties, and states redraw district lines to align with population changes. Where these lines are drawn will have huge impacts on our power in elections and the subsequent distribution of resources for the next decade. With an increase of 80,000 people in the last ten years, San Francisco will be redrawing its Board of Supervisors district lines so that all districts have around the same number of people. It’ll be vital for the Redistricting Task Force, made up of 9 appointees, to keep communities of interest together and avoiding diluting the political voice of marginalized communities when redrawing the maps. Sign up to be a redistricting advocate and help us ensure the voices of working-class communities of color are taken into account and prioritized during this process. 

Cancel Student Debt

Cancel Student Debt

Before the COVID-19 public health crisis began, student debt was already a drag on the national economy, weighing heaviest on Black and Latinx communities, as well as women, amounting to $1.7 trillion dollars. These communities are more likely to fall behind in repayment, and are much more frequently the targets of predatory student loan companies. During the first round of COVID relief, the Federal Government under Trump prioritized bailing corporations with $4 trillion dollars of aid - money that could have and should have gone to everyday people.

This weight is exponentially magnified given the disproportionate toll that COVID-19 is taking on both the health and economic security of people of color and women. Cancelling student debt would allow millions of people to focus on crafting a more meaningful future for themselves and reaffirm education as a basic right. Sign this petition to tell Congress to support student debt cancellation by executive action.
