Ai-jen Poo has been the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) since 2010. She co-founded Domestic Workers United (DWU) in 2000 to mobilize domestic workers and educate them about their rights. Recognized as one of the most successful organizers of this generation, Ai-jen's work in the DWU has seen the passage of the legendary Domestic Workers Bill of Rights in 2010 that gave 200,000 domestic workers in New York City basic labor protection such as minimum wage, health benefits, and paid leaves. A 2012 TIME 100 laureate, Ai-jen keeps the cause of marginalized workers her focus.
