10th Anniversary Fundraiser PArty!
Worker's RIghts center
We are a workers' rights center that organizes workers in our community to end labor exploitation. Based in Central Falls, Rhode Island and founded in 2006, we educate and train workers in their rights, develop new community leaders, and take direct action against injustices to win concrete victories. We work together with state and national coalitions in order to maximize our impact.
EXPLORE OUR CAMPAIGNS
We organize a year-round schedule of workshops on topics related to worker and immigrant rights as well as leadership development. This includes our twice-monthly Basic Workers' Rights Course, a Workers' Compensation course, a RI Wage Law 101 course, and our four-session Democracy School that connects participants to the history of workers, organizing, and immigration in the United States.
Fuerza Laboral is the lead organization in the POWER Network (People Owning Wider Economic Resources), a coalition of public, private, and non-profit partners, which, through our Cooperative Business Incubator project, provides guidance and resources to new cooperative businesses.
