Sanctuary Workplaces

Sanctuary Workplace

Creating Safe Spaces and Movement Building

Immigrant-led worker cooperatives have been a successful tool for migrant communities to build power, build wealth, and develop member-leaders. However, the recent political situation is a reminder that migrant workers and other communities remain vulnerable to injustice and disempowerment.

Presented by Ana Martina of the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives (USFWC), hosted by the Network of Bay Area Worker Cooperatives (NoBAWC), this is a call to action to extend protection and safety to all communities facing harassment and persecution in the workplace, including all people of color, immigrants, Muslims, and people with disabilities. 

Este es un llamado a la acción para extender la protección y seguridad a todas las comunidades que enfrentan acoso y persecución en el lugar de trabajo, incluyendo a todas las personas de color, inmigrantes, musulmanes y personas con discapacidades. Este webinar definirá lo que significa la expansión del santuario, como esta estrategia se ha utilizado a lo largo del tiempo para crear espacios seguros y sin odio para todos, en particular los perseguidos por su estatus migratorio y una nueva guía de recursos sobre sus derechos como trabajadores-propietarios dentro del lugar de trabajadores-propietarios dentro del lugar de trabajo y como individuos/familias.

This workshop will define what expanding sanctuary means, how this strategy has been utilized over time to create safe and hate-free spaces for everyone, in particular, those being persecuted for their immigration status and a new resource guide for worker-owners rights. We will share a new resource guide that has been recently launched by the USFWC and the Democracy at Work Institute in collaboration with Urban Justice Center, where people can obtain information about their rights as worker-owners within the workplace and as individuals/families.
