Workers Defense Action Fund is an organization fighting for the rights of low-wage workers and immigrants across Texas. We ignite a powerful collective fight for a more just future. Change has been slow because those most impacted by systemic inequalities have been ignored.
Our community knows that they have been underestimated and underserved. Texas has more workers making at or below the federal minimum wage than any other state, and it is the most uninsured state in the country. By helping working Texans find their voice in the voting booth and beyond, we challenge the corruption that leads to poverty level wages, wage theft, dangerous and deadly working conditions, and inadequate legal protections for Texas workers.
Our worker members take the lead in everything we do, from endorsing politicians who will fight for worker and immigrants rights to passing policies at the local and state-wide level. Since 2014, Workers Defense Action Fund has endorsed local and state candidates across Texas and reached more than 177,000 people through field programs.
