Voz runs a worker center in N Portland, The Martin Luther King, Jr. Labor Center, a place built by and for day laborers. The worker center brings dignity and justice to the employment relationship between employers and workers by providing a safe, dignified, and organized space for workers to find work, guaranteeing a fair wage, monitoring labor and civil rights abuses, improving working conditions, and recovering stolen wages. Within our new Gender Justice Initiative framework, we are building a project, especially for domestic workers so that they also have an organizational space within the worker center.
