The week of November 11th, we will be celebrating Immigrant Week on campus in recognition of the immigrants that shape our community. Learn about the work of the Pioneer Valley Workers Center, an organization that builds power with low wage and immigrant communities in Western Massachusetts. They are currently assisting with ongoing efforts to provide sanctuary for individual undocumented persons fighting their deportation cases, including court-accompaniment programs, rideshare and childcare programs. The Pioneer Valley Workers Center is based in Northampton, MA, and advocates for and protects the rights of low-wage and immigrant workers throughout western Massachusetts. The center also promotes legislative and grassroots efforts to protect the rights of workers in the region more broadly.
