WeCount! is a statewide 501(c)(3), non-profit organization working mainly from the Homestead. We represent and defend the rights of immigrants, students, and working people of the area. WeCount!’s members are Latino/a, Mayan, and Haitian immigrant workers, working families, and youth. Our members are retirees and those working in: plant nurseries and farms, landscaping, construction, tourism, housekeeping, and industrial shops. They include families and recent immigrants separated from their families in their home countries. We work to achieve social and economic justice by bringing multi-ethnic immigrants, students, and working people together to inform themselves about their rights, support each other, develop their leadership, and take action to improve their lives.
