Adelante We Rise! is a labor movement initiative that meets immigrant workers wherever they are and helps them to advance as far as possible toward full rights and equal protections.
- If they are permanent residents, they can and should become citizens. If they may be eligible for deferred action, they can prepare petitions.
- If they have suffered workplace crimes and other abuses, we will assist them with applications for U or T visas.
- And if they are among the millions of people who do not qualify for any immediate form of relief, we will offer mutual aid and defense through membership in the labor movement.
Workers who currently lack a collective voice on the job either will be referred to the appropriate union or worker center, or offered the opportunity to become connected directly with the labor movement through Working America.
We Rise! is a massive initiative to help immigrant workers gain more rights as a means to building transformative relationships that will prepare us to achieve the next milestone in the fight for immigrant rights and working people.
WE WILL DEFEND AND RESIST
Too often, workplace raids and audits are used as cover to suppress the rights of working people who speak up for safe, just and dignified working conditions. We developed tools for labor and community organizers to prepare for, and resist, the unjust workplace raids and audits that undermine the rights of all workers.
View and download additional materials, such as immigrant rights palm cards, fliers and posters, which are intended to help ensure that members of our unions know their rights and are prepared to defend themselves, and the immigrant members of their families and their communities, in the event of workplace or community raids. It also lists organizations that have useful materials to support, protect and empower immigrant working people.
