Workers’ Dignity is organizing to build a Nashville that values ALL people. We believe people directly impacted by injustice, especially low-wage workers facing abuse by employers, BIPOC and working class neighbors who live in under resourced neighborhoods, and immigrants facing increased ICE raids and detention, are ideally situated to have the knowledge and capacity to create sustaining and equitable change.
We’re fighting for safe construction worksites with worker-led monitoring, freedom from exploitation, and living-wages through our commercial construction campaign. We facilitate weekly Know Your Rights and training workshops to support workers to win back stolen wages from abusive employers. We’re building political power through Participatory Democracy Projects that support everyday people to take active roles in developing and implementing policies that transform our living conditions. We’re fighting for radio airwaves that reflect our communities and amplify the voices of working people on 104.1FM Radio Dignidad. And with the Nashville People’s Budget Coalition we’re fighting to defund the police and invest in real public safety-- things like equitable public transit, actually affordable housing, quality public education and more.
We have big plans for Nashville. But we can’t do any of it without strong community support and grassroots fundraising. Whether you can give $1 or $1,000, your donation builds the people power we need to build the world we all deserve. Our members pay monthly dues to build this work with us. Can you start a monthly donation, too?
