Ben & Jerry’s Foundation and the Berger-Marks Foundation award grants to the WCCNY!

We are proud to announce that we are 2013 recipients of two generous grants from the Ben & Jerry’s Foundation Grassroots Organizing for Social Change Program and the Berger-Marks Foundation! The Ben & Jerry’s Foundation program supports non-profit grassroots, constituent-led organizations across the country that are using direct action and grassroots organizing strategies to accomplish their goals. Thank you Ben & Jerry’s Foundation!

The Berger-Marks Foundation supports organizations that promote workers’ rights and have an impact on social justice. The grant specifically aims to help young women get the skills and confidence to take leadership in struggles for workplace and economic justice. We are very grateful for this support!  To learn more about the great work Berger-Marks supports and the many other organizations and unions that received grants this year, visit their website at

Thanks to this funding we are able to offer a part time position for an organizer to help us continue our social justice work.  Please check soon for the job announcement and help us spread the word.
