Tenants and Workers United (TWU)


TWU's mission is to build power for low-income people in Northern Virginia, to struggle against racism and sexism, to develop leadership for social and economic justice, and to democratically control or own community resources including housing, education and health care.


TWU runs projects and campaigns in the following areas:  Education: Alexandria students and parents fighting to close the achievement gap for students of color in Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) and to ensure that all students graduate prepared to go to college.Healthcare: Working people-childcare providers, independent contractors, etc, families, and retired people. We believe that health is a right, not a privilege. Funding for public healthcare clinics must be a priority to ensure that Alexandria is a healthy community for everyone. Immigration: Community members and people of faith from throughout the Northern Virginia region united in the belief that harsh Immigration and Customs Enforcement Raids (ICE Raids) must stop and that government must pass just and human immigration reform. Worker Justice: Workers who work all over Northern Virginia. We organize  to educate ourselves, recover unpaid wages, and to win fair pay and treatment for all workers.
