What is Worker’s Justice Project?

WJP has a growing a membership based that is building power to win protection, adopt, enforce community labor standards and transform exploitative labor practices in unregulated industries such as construction and house cleaning.
Our mission is to empower low-wage immigrant workers to gain a voice in the workplace and build strong and economically sustainable communities through education, organizing, leadership development, and the growth of grassroots economic alternatives
Our main goals are to change the conditions that lead to exploitation, to strengthen the grassroots base of the labor movement, and to create grassroots economic alternatives.
We pursue our goals through advocacy, grassroots organizing, education and training, creative expression, and by working in a coalition with allies that support our common objectives.
