The Black and Brown Workers Cooperative’s mission is to actively challenge, resist and dismantle systems of oppression that adversely impact the Black and Brown worker. Thus, we push for the social and economic liberation of the Black and Brown worker.
We the Black and Brown Workers Cooperative (BBWC), a direct action social justice entity, have come together to combat injustices that manifest both in and out of the non-profit organizational structure and in the broader community of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Our mission is to actively challenge, resist and dismantle, those colonialist, white supremacist and oppressive systems that impact our lives as Black and Brown workers.
Most importantly, we seek to create our own spaces where Black and Brown labor and community will define the value of their own work while setting roots in communities that establish black and brown owned enterprise and collectively run spaces. Our philosophy is rooted in decolonization practices and organizing methodologies.
The Black and Brown Workers Cooperative conducts several campaigns aimed at the dismantling systems of oppression that adversely impact the Black and Brown worker. Each campaign is targeted to a specific issue and has specific desirable outcomes
This platform includes a documentary that amplifies the impacts of displacement on long-term residents in West/Southwest Philadelphia.
We always have ongoing labor campaigns, many of which are behind-the scenes to protect the workers we organize with.
