New York Worker Center Federation

NYFed2015

The New York Worker Center Federation is an autonomous multiracial movement of workers and immigrants organizing across sectors and issues to build the power of the people whose labor fuels this city. Through Freedom Cities, the WCF aims to center directly impacted communities in the fight against the Trump administration, leading the movement to create safe communities where everyone can thrive. Join the #FreedomCities Campaign!

The New York Workers Center Federation (WCF) began with a series of training sessions where the stories of individual workers and organizations began to tell the narrative of a powerful emerging movement. During the second training, workers voted to create a space for leadership development and joint campaign work. On October 14, 2014 marked the official founding of the New York Workers Center Federation.

The WCF consists of Street Vendor Project, El Centro del Inmigrante, New Immigrant Community Empowerment, Cidadao Global, Laundry Workers Center, DRUM, ROC NY, New York Taxi Workers Alliance, Retail Action Project, and Enlace.
