Centro Comunitario de Trabajadores
CCT is a not-for-profit organization that works with the mostly undocumented Central American immigrant community in New Bedford and surrounding areas. CCT is unique among Massachusetts immigrant workers’ centers in that its staff and leadership are drawn exclusively from the immigrant worker community it serves.
We have a three-pronged approach: first, to educate immigrant workers and the broader immigrant community about their rights in the workplace and their human rights. Second, when their rights are violated, we give them the tools to organize themselves and provide support and leadership training. Third, we help them devise effective strategies to take action to resolve these injustices and create more dignified working conditions. Throughout, we focus on empowering immigrant workers to find their voices and develop their capacity to stand up for themselves.
