Three children hold signs in support of immigrant rights inside the U.S. Capitol.

Instead, it would result in children being detained indefinitely in worse conditions,...

With everything that's going on right now, it can be easy to feel helpless. But amid all of the chaos and hate coming out of the Trump Administration, we have a powerful opportunity to take positive, proactive action here at the local level and pass policy that charts a stronger path forward. And we can do that by passing the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. → Take action now to support the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights for Seattle!
