Worker centers are becoming an important element in labor and community organizing and the struggle for fair pay and decent working conditions for low-wage workers. This book is designed to be a practical workbook for staff, boards, and supporters of worker centers, explaining how to survey the community, take on an initial campaign, recruit leaders, and raise seed funds. The Worker Center Handbook compiles best practices from around the country on partnering with labor, enlisting the assistance of faith communities and lawyers, raising funds, developing a serious membership program, integrating civic engagement work, and running major campaigns. Full of concrete examples from worker centers around the country, the handbook is practical and honest about challenges and opportunities. 311 pages paperback
