The Heartland Worker's Center would like to thank you for participating this year in Omaha Gives!, a 24-hour online giving event organized by the Omaha Community Foundation. This year, 92 donors from our community contributed to raise $4,627 to The Heartland Worker's Center. With your contributions, we will be able to:
- Organize 1,000 new Latino voters for the 2016 Presidential Elections
- Train 150 workers in the construction and cleaning industries about their rights and responsibilities in the workplace, especially about the right to a safe workplace and the right to get paid
- Find, train, and develop 100 Latino leaders from South Omaha and rural communities who will develop the skills necessary to organize their networks to vote and participate in worker rights trainings
- Lobby for legislation in the State Legislature to build a more equitable Nebraska for Latinos and immigrants
This contribution is a large part of how we can impact the lives of people in our community, by organizing new voters, training workers about their rights, training leaders, and building collective power for Latinos and immigrants in Nebraska. Together, we will continue to build a community that works for all.
