The Workers Center For Racial Justice is a grassroots organization fighting for Black Liberation, and a fair and inclusive society that benefits everyone and leaves no one out. We do this by organizing marginalized Black workers and the families that depend on them, in order to address the root causes of high rates of unemployment, low-wage work and over-criminalization plaguing the Black community. We focus on direct action organizing, policy advocacy, leadership development and voter engagement at the city and state level to achieve our mission of building a caring economy and society that allows Black people to reach their full human potential.

To accomplish our work we recruit, help raise consciousness and mobilize unemployed, low-wage and formerly incarcerated Black workers to:

Fight for increased access to sustainable and living wage jobs

Advocate for improving the overall quality of low-wage jobs

Develop public policy to leverage public and private dollars for job creation

Work to reduce the over-criminalization and mass incarceration of Black people

Challenge existing negative images and stereotypes about Black people.
