Our Programs

Workplace Health and Safety

Our workplace health and safety program focuses on three components:

  • educating workers on health and safety issues in industries with high injury rates
  • advocating for safe and health workplaces and policies that protect workers
  • develop leadership amongst low-wage workers to advocate for themselves

 

Wage Theft

Through our wage theft campaign, we seek to:

  • activate disenfranchised workers in Western North Carolina to stand up against wage theft
  • engage community partners and allies regarding wage theft
  • reach out to local politicians regarding wage theft

 

Women Fighting for Justice

Our women’s program works with immigrant women workers to empower them to testify to realities regarding oppression through safe spaces and networks for them to be supported and heard and to develop leadership skills to encourage other women to do the same.
