The Miami Workers Center (MWC) is a strategy and action center. We build the collective strength of low-income people of color and our communities for power and self-determination. We initiate and support grassroots projects, known as Grassroots Councils that are led by the people most affected by the social issues of our time: poverty, racism, and gender oppression. Our organizing model emphasizes building the broadest and deepest base among our constituencies; developing their strategic and tactical leadership; shifting the public debate around issues impacting our communities; and building alliances that enable us to amplify our power and message.
