Voz 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.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, Voz generated more than $500,000 in wages for Portland day laborers. In addition to direct economic empowerment, Voz engaged 500 day laborers in workforce and leadership development workshops to build long-term power in the day laborer community.
“The center is an excellent resource; it’s awesome because it gets people off the street and working, and they pay a fair wage! It’s all about rights. You don’t get taken advantage of. It’s a community.”
—Kim, Voz day laborer
