The Labor Committee on Immigrant Worker Rights (LCIWR) is a project of Chicago Jobs with Justice bringing together unions and worker centers that are representing and organizing immigrant workers, both documented and undocumented, to advocate for meaningful immigration reforms and an end to deportations, as well to mobilize to protect workers from retaliation for organizing based on immigration status.  The Labor Committee on Immigrant Worker Rights meets on the 1st Wednesday of every month at 10 AM at Jobs with Justice at 333 S.
