Every day, the Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights opens its doors to some of the bravest people you will ever meet. They all have distinct stories, some harder than others with harrowing tales of crossing deserts in darkness or tumultuous seas in yolas to be here. Others are “luckier” to be reunited with their families under more auspicious circumstances. But every single one of them left places they know, family they love and countries they feel connected to, to arrive in an unfamiliar place that especially recently, has become more and more unwelcoming by the minute.
The Worker Center provides a safe space for workers to gain the skills they need to get better jobs, fight against wage theft, and advocate for better working conditions. We also help our workers find jobs with values-aligned employers! Help us continue to do this important work, and most importantly of all: keep it free.
