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 25 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, for building collective power, developing skills, and operating a shared business.
Members of the collectives work united and organized to eradicate the injustices that affect them, while building their dignity, power and leadership. They learn, work,and participate in immigrant worker movements because they share a vision of having the same opportunities and rights than any other worker. 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.
