Domestic Worker Organizer
Mitzi Ordonez first came to the Faith and Justice Worker Center seeking assistance in recovering her earned wages from her former employer - a local restaurant. Personally she has learned through the pain of the injustices and inequities she has both seen and experienced, to confront and resolve the issues directly with other people directly affected by them.
Mitzi holds a BA in Restaurant and Hotel Management and certificates in Food Management, Business Administration and Tourism. She credits her work in customer service with helping her understand and connect with people.
As the daughter of a domestic worker, and an immigrant worker herself, she was drawn to the organization's mission to educate and empower low-wage workers around their basic rights on the job. As a mother and a fighter she is committed to working to build better conditions and equality for women within American society.
She currently works as the Faith and Justice Worker Center's Domestic Worker Organizer.
