Southern Maine Workers' Center
Organizing builds power. Supporting grassroots organizing and advocacy is central to our mission. For these reasons, we are proud to support Southern Maine Workers Center, a member-led organization of workers and poor people building grassroots movements to ensure that our basic human rights are met. The Southern Maine Workers Center pursues a vision of “transformative community organizing rooted in love for our communities and a commitment to do what’s right with whatever you’ve got.” SMWC’s recent work includes Work with Dignity, an initiative organizing workers to identify, create and implement campaigns for economic justice that fosters solidarity between immigrant workers, low-wage workers, union workers and others; and Health Care Is a Human Right, building collective power of people to advocate for and win universal publicly funded health care.
