We also always welcome donations to help us expand services and education to our workers. Consider making either a one-time or sustaining donation to Voz here.
Through your efforts, we have been able to advance economic opportunities for day laborers, organize them to improve their working conditions and defend their rights, and mobilize day laborers and allies to fight against anti-immigrant and anti-worker policies.
Voz believes that day laborers should lead the way in addressing the problems that confront them. We follow the popular education model, which recognizes that each person-- regardless of formal education-- has knowledge and experience that can be shared to build the knowledge of the group.
