Worker’s Justice Project (WJP), a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks, was founded in 2010 to address the racial and economic injustices that day laborers face by building collective power to win institutional change. WJP runs a long-standing worker’s center in South Brooklyn and organizes female day laborers in Williamsburg through our Women’s Economic Justice Initiative. We promote justice and opportunity for low-wage immigrant workers in New York City by pushing for systematic enforcement and expansion of workplace protections, including labor and occupational health and safety standards; advocating for industry-specific efforts to improve working conditions; offer skills-building training to workers in health & safety and industry-specific areas; and educating immigrant communities about their rights in the workplace and how to exercise those rights.
The Organizer is responsible for outreach, recruit, and retention of worker members. The Organizer provides strategic leadership in the development of organizational base building plans, enlists WJP members, leaders and volunteers in these movement building efforts, and trains and supports members in developing their leadership roles in the movement. The Organizer plays a predominant role in planning, developing, and carrying out organizing campaigns.
