The Mission of the Tompkins County Workers’ Center is to stand up with all people treated unfairly at work. We will support, advocate for, and seek to empower each other to create a more just community and world.
Support. We listen, provide information, encouragement and strategize with workers through our hotline, trainings, outreach, presentations and tabling.
Advocacy. We advocate with and on behalf of workers regardless of employment status who are being treated unfairly: to correct problems, end workers’ rights violations, improve conditions and set standards of employer behavior.
Empowerment. We encourage and deepen grassroots leaders’ organizing skills to create change in their own and others’ lives.
Movement-Building. We educate and shape community values and standards of economic rights and employer behavior through networking, coalition-building and solidarity.
