WeCount! is a membership-led organization of low-wage immigrant workers and families in South Florida, primarily those who live in South Miami-Dade. Members include agricultural workers, day laborers, and domestic workers. Together, they organize to transform their workplaces and neighborhoods in order to win the South Florida we all deserve.
The Allapattah Collaborative CDC
The Allapattah Collaborative’s goal is to protect and strengthen the identity, charm and cultural appeal of the Allapattah neighborhood, as well as other ethnic communities in Miami. They do this by ensuring long-term residents are able to thrive in an environment plagued with disparities, misinformation, and disinvestment. Their strategies focus on collaboration, education and coaching to strengthen individuals, small micro businesses and the community at large.
The Miami Workers Center
The Miami Workers Center (MWC) is a frontline strategy and action center whose purpose is to continue building power and self-determination among South Florida’s working-class people of color. The center used an intersectional approach linking gender, race, and socio-economic status across their analysis and programs. From workers rights to affordable housing issues, the center strategizes, designs and leads campaigns that can transform local workplaces and neighborhoods for the better.
