  • Vision and Mission


Our vision is that Los Angeles garment workers transform the fashion industry to eliminate sweatshop labor. Workers lead the fight for safe and dignified workplace with fair wages. We build power from the bottom up for social and economic justice.



Garment Worker Center is a worker rights organization leading an anti-sweatshop movement to improve conditions for tens of thousands of Los Angeles garment workers. Through direct organizing, GWC develops leaders who demand enforcement of strong labor laws and accountability from factory owners, manufacturers, and fashion brands. We center immigrant workers, women of color, and their families who are impacted by exploitation in the fashion industry.
