About Us

The mission of the Baltimore Black Worker Center (BBWC) is to build the grassroots

power of Black workers to promote racial and economic justice in the workplace and

throughout our communities.

The BBWC aims to increase access to quality and living wage jobs; end discrimination

in the workplace; redefine the meaning and possibilities of work; and advance a

solidarity economy in Baltimore City led by Black workers (whether through

unionization, policy reform, survival programs, worker-cooperatives, and/or grassroots

issue-based campaigns).

Building a Baltimore Black Worker Center is about building a movement of Black

workers to transform ourselves, our city, and the current economic, political, and social

status quo.

We seek to organize with and as Black workers because Black workers occupy an

important and strategic role in our society for disrupting business as usual and

developing sustainable, creative, and transformative Black worker-led solutions for a

just and equitable Baltimore for all.

The Baltimore Black Worker Center is a part of the National Black Worker Center

Project, which is building a national Black worker center network to directly address the

two-dimensional Black jobs crisis of unemployment and low wage work.
