Worker’s Justice Project (WJP) (www.workersjustice.org) 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. 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.
Worker's Justice Project is a fiscally-sponsored project of TSNE (www.tsne.org).
