Our Transition to Membership
Over the past few years, 3,300 people have signed up to be a part of the Workers Center through our Sanctuary In The Streets network, our Worker Committees and our Interfaith Network. Now we are making the meaning of this membership more intentional. Check it out below, and consider re-pledging yourself to become an official card-carrying member of the Workers Center!
- Receive a Workers Center ID card (Come to our monthly General Assembly the first Monday of the month to get your card made or email firstname.lastname@example.org) and T-shirt!
- Be part of guiding the direction of PVWC through our Annual Membership Meeting and through regular meetings. Workers and immigrant members set our campaigns, priorities and strategy.
- Be eligible to be elected to leadership positions and the Board of Directors.
- PVWC program support including:
- Community Food Pantry
- 24-hour bilingual hotline to address immigration and workplace emergencies
- Rideshare and Court Accompaniment programs
- Political education trainings
- Access to Solidarity Fund for organizing support, based on eligibility
- Attend one New Member Orientation (stay tuned for next upcoming dates!)
- Attend PVWC meetings when possible.
- Pay membership dues.
- Attend the annual People’s Assembly Membership Meeting (11.17.2019)
- Participate in at least 5 actions or events annually to advance worker and immigrant rights (i.e. marches or demonstrations, trainings, rideshare rides, court accompaniment sessions, sanctuary accompaniment.)
We know that the minimum of $2/month or $24/year can still be a hardship for many, and no one will be turned away from membership because of financial hardship.
