Mission: The Center for Worker Justice of Eastern Iowa (CWJ) unites low-wage workers across race, ethnicity, and immigration status to promote and defend workers’ rights on the job, tenants’ rights to safe and affordable housing, just immigration policies, and more equitable communities.  With support from a broad network of labor, faith-based, and civil rights organizations, and people like you, CWJ members are raising our voices, taking action, and improving the lives of thousands of workers.  Together, we are CWJ!

Location: Iowa City (70. miles from Grinnell College)
