Workers, local politicians, activists and organized labor celebrated the soft opening of the Central Carolina Worker Justice Center this morning.
The center, located in a room at the back of the Interactive Resource Center homeless day shelter in downtown Greensboro, will provide a much-needed space for workers to come together.
Former city councilwoman and community leader Goldie Wells said the space has been envisioned for more than a year, and with feedback from hundreds of workers. It is a place where low-wage workers can build unity for collective action, she said, and is designed to be driven by workers themselves.
