WHAT WE DO

Damayan empowers low-wage workers to fight for their labor, health, gender, and immigrant rights. Established in 2002, our purpose is to build leadership at the grassroots level to eliminate labor trafficking, fight labor fraud and wage theft, and to demand fair labor standards to achieve economic and social justice.
