<p>Unified by the motto, &ldquo;We have a dream that one day, all work will be valued equally,&rdquo; Domestic Workers United is a guild of New York nannies, housekeepers, and caregivers, organizing for power, respect, and fair labor standards. At PEN World Voices, they emerged from a five-month writing workshop led by documentary poet, global labor activist, and 2010 Guggenheim Fellow Mark Nowak.</p>
