Immigrants’ and Civil Rights
To us, workers’ rights go hand-in-hand with immigrants’ and civil rights because they are about the same thing: The fundamental respect that each person deserves.
Today’s broken immigration system hurts all workers. As long as unscrupulous employers are able to exploit undocumented workers, the current two-tiered workforce will continue to drive down wages for all workers.
We are active in defending voting rights and challenging unjust police practices, like New York City’s stop-and-frisk program, that target people of color. These policies threaten the democratic principles we value, and we cannot let them stand.
