Break the Chain Campaign is a project of the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC.
For 13 years, we have provided direct social services for domestic workers (nannies, housekeepers, and caregivers) who have survived human trafficking and worker exploitation. Historically, our work has centered around the struggles of household workers employed by diplomats and employees of international organizations like the World Bank and the IMF. Currently, we focus on research, writing, policy advocacy, and training, all based on our direct service experience and our commitment to a rights-based approach.
We are working to deepen the connections between parallel movements of human rights, immigrant rights, worker rights, climate justice, trade and tax fairness, and demilitarization, through the lens of domestic workers fighting for justice in the US and around the world.
