About Us

Our mission is to build a worker-led organization that builds worker power through organizing, community education, and leadership. The immediate goal identified by workers is to win a formal site to wait for work. Securing a safe place for all day laborers to look for work will also establish a space to come together to protect our rights as workers and our dignity as human beings.

We believe that all human beings, regardless of their race, ethnicity, language, or immigration status have the right to be included in and respected by society at large. We believe that working is not a crime and that together we can organize and build power.
