Pomona Economic Opportunity Center
The Pomona Economic Opportunity Center (PEOC) provides an opportunity for day laborers to organize and advocate for themselves in relation to policies that impact their lives, to look for work, to obtain new trades and skills, to set new and improved labor practice standards, and to connect with referral networks. The PEOC advocates for and with day laborers when they encounter unsatisfactory working conditions, such as non-payment of wages and abandonment at the work site. The Center’s primary goals include increasing the financial security, safety, health, civic participation and human rights of day laborers in the Pomona Valley region, along with addressing and working to change the systemic obstacles that stand in the way of achieving those goals. We welcome volunteer work in any form that will benefit the day laborers and the organization as a whole.
