    Local/State/National Organization Links

    There are several components to The Workers' Rights Law Center's (WRLC) work. First, the Center's staff provides free legal services to low-wage workers struggling to enforce their rights in the workplace. Second, the Center contributes to the empowerment of workers by educating workers about their labor and civil rights. The WRLC seeks to work collaboratively with local labor unions, workers' groups, and other community groups to protect the rights of workers in the region.
    The Fiscal Policy Institute (FPI) is a nonpartisan research and education organization that focuses on the broad range of tax, budget, economic and related public policy issues that affect the quality of life and the economic well-being of New York State residents. Founded in 1991, FPI's work is intended to further the development and implementation of public policies that create a strong economy in which prosperity is broadly shared by all New Yorkers.
    Founded in 1987, Jobs with Justice's mission is to improve working people's standard of living, fight for job security, and protect workers' right to organize. JwJ's core belief is that in order to be successful, workers' rights struggles have to be part of a larger campaign for economic and social justice. To that end, JwJ has created a network of local coalitions that connect labor, faith-based, community, and student organizations to work together on workplace and community social justice campaigns.

    of New York

    Across New York State and the country a growing movement is bringing workers and their supporters in unions, religious institutions and youth groups together in efforts to challenge corporate control and to move toward greater economic justice. Specifically, workers, trade unionists, people of faith and young people are uniting to fight sweatshop conditions at home and abroad and to end child labor. They also are actively leading campaigns that call upon municipalities to require that those doing business with government pay living wages.

    The mission of Quality Care NY is to improve the quality of care for individuals with developmental disabilities and the quality of work life for the workers who provide that care.  Quality Care NY believes that children and adults with developmental disabilities deserve the highest quality of care and services that can be provided.  Quality care begins with making sure the people who provide that care, direct care workers, are treated with fairness and respect.
