We’re committed to an inclusive and equitable future of work where workers from Black and Indigenous communities, and other communities of color and their communities thrive.
Through coalition building and leadership development, we aim to build a regional movement for a racially and economically just future of work, and to combat the damage to workers’ rights and economic welfare of our communities by a handful of giant corporations, especially technology and app-based corporations. We do this by building the bargaining power of workers and community in sectors where global economic shifts, climate emergency, demographic shifts and technological changes are impacting hard-won workers’ rights, such as the app-based (or ‘gig’) economy, and offering new opportunities for workforce development and shared prosperity like in the the green infrastructure economy,
Silicon Valley Rising
Silicon Valley Rising is a coordinated campaign driven by a powerful coalition of labor, faith leaders, community-based organizations and workers that aspires to a new vision for Silicon Valley where all workers, their families and communities are valued. Over the past 7 years, we mobilized tens of thousands of workers and residents to win major reforms in the tech sector.
Silicon Valley Rising is about bringing everyone in this Valley together to solve the biggest challenges of our time.
Gig Workers Rising
We launched the Gig Workers Rising campaign in 2018 to support app-based workers who are organizing for better wages, working conditions, and respect on the job.
Gig Workers Rising has organized countless meetings, listening sessions, protests and actions to support drivers who are organizing for livable wages, fair working conditions, safety and a voice on the job. Today, it’s part of a nationwide movement of app workers that are joining together to hold the handful of powerful gig corporations and politicians accountable to app workers across the country.
Essential Workers Council
The needs and voices of working people are essential to solving the biggest issues we face. Together with our partners in the labor and workers’ rights movement, we’re bringing together leaders who represent thousands of working people in the South Bay to win critical rights such as hazard pay, protective gear, and emergency paid sick days, and set the agenda for our recovery and our future.
