Visual Aide Graphic Designer ~ SF Day Labor Program and Women’s Collective

The San Francisco Day Labor Program and Women’s Collective (DLP/WC) is a grassroots-organized program deeply rooted in the community with strong support of key stakeholders. For over 20 years, the DLP/WC has been extremely successful at uniting, empowering, and organizing immigrant workers for dignified work and fair wages in San Francisco. Workers are organized in two collectives, one of men and one of women, to build collective power, develop skills, and operate a business.

Members of the collectives work together to eradicate the injustices that affect day laborers and domestic workers, fostering an organized environment where all workers can build their dignity, power and leadership. Members share a vision of a community where day laborers and domestic workers have the same opportunities and rights than any other worker. They accomplish this by offering each other opportunities to learn, work and participate in the movement of immigrant and domestic workers. The collectives are co-founders and leaders in the National Day Labor Organizing Network, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Progressive Workers Alliance, California Domestic Workers Coalition, Jobs with Justice, San Francisco Rising, among others.

In 2015, the DLP/WC started an exciting reorganization process with the objective of establishing a more sustainable and scalable model that enhances the impact of the program in the lives of immigrant workers.
