Workplace Health and Safety
Women Fighting for Justice
Workers in Western North Carolina face common challenges in the workplace: wage theft, unsafe working conditions, discrimination, and sexual aggresion.
We have a simple vision: All in Western North Carolina are empowered and education around labor rights and working in places where those right are respected.
Our mission is to develop leadership among workers through organizing and education to resolve issues of labor rights and promote fair working conditions in Western North Carolina.
Our workplace health and safety program focuses on three components:
educating workers on health and safety issues in industries with high injury rates
advocating for safe and health workplaces and policies that protect workers
develop leadership amongst low-wage workers to advocate for themselves
Through our wage theft campaign, we seek to:
activate disenfranchised workers in Western North Carolina to stand up against wage theft
engage community partners and allies regarding wage theft
reach out to local politicians regarding wage theft.
Our women's program works with immigrant women workers to empower them to testify to realities regarding oppression through safe spaces and networks for them to be supported and heard and to develop leadership skills to encourage other women to do the same.
