Rosie Perez and Julianne Moore Stand Up for Domestic Workers

From the National Domestic Workers Alliance:

Yesterday, the full Senate took up an immigration reform bill that could help the millions of domestic workers whose labor makes all other work possible in the United States.

Over the next few weeks they’ll be making decisions about immigration reform that will impact the lives of millions of domestic workers and their families. 

That’s why We Belong Together launched an exciting new photo and video campaign featuring celebrities like Rosie Perez, Julianne Moore, and Christy Turlington Burns standing up for immigration reform that keeps families together and treats women fairly. 

We need your help to make sure that the message of the photos and video get all the way to Congress on Monday morning -- can you share the photos and video today? 

By sharing the video and photos, and by taking your own #Fairdora photos, we can send a strong message to Congress -- it’s time for immigration reform that treats women fairly and keeps families together! 

Why are we asking folks to wear fedoras? Women wear many hats -- as community leaders, mothers, workers, volunteers, and more.  The fedora is a metaphor for women’s multiple roles and identities and a symbol of support for reform legislation that is inclusive of the needs of women.

Thank you, and we can’t wait to see you in your #fairdora!
