Black Workers Center Meeting

Thursday, December 15, 2016 at 06:00 PM · 6 rsvps
United Black Fund in Washington, DC

What is a Black Workers Center?

There are countless ways to envision a Black Workers Center (BWC). Because of the staggering economic difficulties that black workers face, we need them to raise their voice, share their stories, and help mold the vision and goals of what a BWC in DC needs to be. To overcome chronic black unemployment and underemployment, we must talk about how race & work intersect while creating spaces where black workers and their allies can create their own opportunities for training, employment, and worker ownership.

We need long-time DC residents. We need long-term unemployed and underemployed workers. We need single parents and returning citizens. We need you. That being said, all are welcome regardless of race to help build the movement for creating a BWC in Washington, DC.

The DC Black Workers Center is a resident-led space that creates and maintains racial and economic justice through popular education, direct action and the creation of worker-owned alternatives.

The DC Black Workers Center will move beyond traditional workforce development initiatives to become:

  • A center for finding and creating dignified Black work and training.
  • An incubation space for alternatives to low-wage work such as worker-owned cooperatives.
  • A space to openly discuss the intersections of race and work, as well as a space for workers to positively recognize their Blackness.
  • An environment to challenge bad employers who exploit, cheat and steal from their workers.
  • A popular education space to discuss how to build power among Black workers.
