Here at the Workers’ Center of CNY we are always working and fighting hard for the rights and dignity of immigrants and workers. Now that Donald Trump, an anti-immigrant, racist, xenophobe, is president, we are committed to fighting even harder. While we are deeply unsettled and disturbed by all that Trump represents and stands for–misogyny, racism, exploiting and abusing workers–we are also encouraged and excited that this year marks the Workers’ Center of CNY’s ten year anniversary!

In the past decade, we have won many important victories. From organizing guest workers at the NY State Fair to end exploitation, abuse, and human trafficking of workers, to our farmworker leaders standing up against retaliation, intimidation, workplace violence at Marks Farm in Lowville. In the next two weeks, we will stroll down memory lane to highlight more of the victories we have accomplished.

We want to continue to grow our base so that we can win even more victories. That is why we are reaching out to you for support. We are kicking off a two week fundraising campaign to raise $5000 to support immigrant worker organizing. When you donate, you are supporting local workers and immigrants fighting for fair, just, and dignified, workplaces and communities.
The funds raised during this campaign will go towards funding “Know Your Rights”, transportation costs for outreach, the Green Light campaign to expand access to driver’s licenses for all, our newly formed theater troupe “Teatro de los Trabajadores,” and our Women’s Group committee. All of these programs are essential for building our organizational capacity so that we can continue fighting for dignity and respect in central New York.
