About the Organization:
The New Orleans Workers' Center for Racial Justice is a multi-racial membership-based organization dedicated to building the power and participation of poor people in order to expand democracy and transform the economy. We organize directly affected people, and couple their courage with strategic legal, policy, and communications work to build campaigns that advance racial justice, immigrant rights, and a fair economy. Our members are African American and immigrant workers and families in New Orleans and the Gulf South. The Workers’ Center anchors three grassroots membership organizations: Congress of Day Laborers, Stand With Dignity, and the Seafood Workers Alliance. Over the last thirteen years, the Center’s organizing and policy victories have substantially improved the material conditions for poor people in the South. Together with our allies, we are building a new freedom movement to fight for dignified work, racial justice, liberation that transcends borders, and our full participation in every decision that affects our lives. For more information, including profiles of our wins in the New York Times, Time Magazine, and Newsweek, visit www.nowcrj.org.
