Worker Activism and Education

EJC has continued to train and mobilize worker members of two community organizing groups: Workers Advocating for Greater Equality (WAGE) and the Injured Worker Advocates (IWA).  Workers in both groups have received training in how to speak to the media and advocate on workplace justice issues both formally and informally before members of the D.C. Council and Congress.

EJC also coordinates Know Your Rights trainings, through which workers learn about their rights and responsibilities on the job, get empowered to identify illegal practices, and learn how to take action to seek justice.
