At Voz, we serve the most vulnerable and marginalized of workers: older adults, seniors, immigrants and refugees, houseless, and those living with chronic illnesses. Day laborers work in temporary low-wage jobs where they do not have access to sick leave and cannot work remotely. As the COVID-19 pandemic intensifies, we are setting up a preparedness plan that combines education, individual and collective preparedness planning, and access to direct services (including an emergency solidarity fund to ensure worker access to medical care, sick leave, good hygiene, mental health, housing, and food security.)
Currently, we have limited our operations and seek support to implement this preparedness plan to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on day laborer workers.
Voz Workers’ Rights Education Project is a worker-led organization that empowers diverse day laborers and immigrants to improve their working conditions and protect civil rights through leadership development, organizing, education, and economic opportunity. We operate the Martin Luther King Jr. Worker Center, which offers a safe space for workers, connects hundreds of workers each month with economic opportunities and provides workforce development trainings and leadership-building and advocacy.
