Laundry Workers Center
Vision: LWC addresses the need for community-based leadership development geared toward improving the living and working conditions of workers in the laundry, warehouse, and food service industries, as well as their families. LWC’s work aims to combat worker abuses which are endemic in low-income communities.
Impact: Laundry Workers Center has four active programs which members can participate in: Workplace Justice Campaign, The Progressive Block Leadership Institute, The Research and Policy group, and Solidarity, a network of member-led organizations and coalitions.
