About Us

The Workers Center for Racial Justice (WCRJ) is a grassroots organization founded in 2012 by a group of unemployed and formerly incarcerated Black workers. Our core work revolves around organizing unemployed, low-wage and formerly incarcerated Black workers for racial and economic justice. Our mission is to eliminate the barriers to sustainable and living wage employment for Black workers, strengthen economic security for Black families, work to end the over-criminalization prevalent in the Black community, and advance a progressive pro-worker agenda that will lead to inclusion and prosperity for all marginalized workers.
