The mission of the Bay Area Black Worker Center (BABWC) is to eliminate Black poverty by increasing access to quality jobs, improving the quality of jobs in those industries that employ Black workers, and reducing employment discrimination against Black workers.


 The BABWC develops organized power and authentic grassroots leadership among Black workers (unionized, nonunion, immigrant, formerly incarcerated, youth, and the unemployed) and the extended community. The center’s key strategies are leadership development of workers, research, organizing, and building strategic alliances between the Bay Area labor movement and the Black community. As a result of its activities, the BABWC seeks to promote economic and racial justice, peace, and prosperity for the Bay Area by eliminating poverty wage employment and developing policies and corporate practices that perpetuate equality in the labor market.
