IWJ-affiliated worker center in Milwaukee, Voces de la Frontera, was honored in December by The Nation Magazine on their annual "Progressive Honor Roll" as the most valuable grassroots group of 2012. Voces was named for its advocacy of immigrants and worker's rights. In 2012, Voces de la Frontera worked with Palmero's Pizza workers as they called for safer working conditions and union recognition. Most notably, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement suspended an audit after recognizing the ongoing labor dispute between Palermo's Pizza workers and management. Voces also won two legislative victories in 2012 as they worked to stop the unjust voter ID law and to cancel the discriminatory state redistricting map.
Congratulations Voces de la Frontera!
