The Pioneer Valley Workers Center is an immigrant and worker-led organization that fights for collective power and racial and economic justice. Workers lead campaigns to confront exploitation and deportation, supported by our Sanctuary in the Streets network.
The Pioneer Valley Workers Center hosts free Legal Clinics and Know-Your-Rights trainings in English and Spanish (please contact us ahead of time if you’d like us to offer one in another language). We also connect workers with lawyers who meet with them for free, and can work on individual cases with them if they decide to pursue legal action. We work with a dedicated team of lawyers who understand why it is so important to connect their work to organizing campaigns. We know that doing this amplifies our voices and increases public pressure on abusive bosses in a way that can result in big wins.
