Brockton Worker's Alliance
(Worker's Rights | Immigrant Rights | Labor)
The Brockton Workers Alliance (further referred to as BWA) is a non-profit organization, sponsored by The Lynn Workers’ Center,that builds the power of immigrant workers and communities through collective action, advocacy and organizing. Brockton is the home of about 100,000 residents and almost half of them are immigrants and refugees mostly from Latin-America, Haiti and Cape Verde. Many of them work in factories, carpentry, roofing and cleaning industries.The group was formed to bring issues of wage theft abuse due to immigration status that many of our neighbors living in this area confront in their places of work. BWA is an emerging racial and economic justice organization, playing an important role in increasing community outreach in Brockton to build power and win campaigns for low and moderate-income people that are impacted by recent Federal immigration decisions, and inadequate working conditions.
