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 $500,000 in wages for day laborers. In addition to direct economic empowerment, 500 day laborers participated in our workforce and leadership development workshops to build long-term power in the day laborer community. Our bottom line is a community where all workers and immigrants can thrive.
For a second consecutive year, Portland Nursery contributes with our cause of advocating for workers and immigrants rights. This time Portland Nursery provides 10% off for donations of $25+ and 20% off for donations of $50+.
“I see Voz as a base where we can see ourselves as a community, not as individuals. The more united we are, the stronger we become. At Voz, I see that it is possible to achieve a place where we can be united. As I always say: Nothing is impossible.” —Eligio
