Celebrating October’s Grantee Highlight: Pilipino Workers Center (PWC)
We’re celebrating Filipino American History Month with a special Grantee Spotlight honoring our community partners at Pilipino Workers Center (PWC)!
The Pilipinx-led organization has been making waves in the fight for social justice since 1997. From providing immigration legal services to advocating for affordable housing and workers’ rights, PWC demands for better living and working conditions for low-wage Pilipinx communities throughout Southern California. We are proud to recognize and honor the outstanding work of Pilipino Workers Center and all that they do to empower and uplift community members throughout the region.

Fighting to Empower Workers
Aquilina Soriano, Executive Director
"We recently won the largest settlement in California history—an $8.4 million judgement for 149 residential care workers over stolen wages. And with the support of Liberty Vote! we have also been able to launch a C4 called Pilipino Action Center to educate workers about critical electoral campaigns and issues. We are at a crossroads in our economic recovery—we can either accept the status quo or build back in a way that makes us all stronger.”
