Description/Mission statement:
The Center is a place for garment workers to organize. There are monthly educational workshops that explain issues such as wage and hour laws, health and safety regulations and discrimination. Garment workers also come to find help with their work problems - if they have not gotten paid, if they were fired unfairly or if the factory is engaging in unfair and unsafe practices. The center also provides a space to centralize all the efforts happening against sweatshops and to help garment workers.
