Alexandria, Virginia

Based in Alexandria, Virginia and with a satellite office in the Culmore area of Fairfax County, Tenants and Workers United (formerly known as the Tenants’ and Workers’ Support Committee) is the largest member-based, low-income community organization in Northern Virginia.

It is one of a small number of social change organizations comprised of multi-national immigrants and African Americans in the South.  Our mission, developed over 23 years, is to build the power of low-income people – multi-national immigrants, African Americans, women, low-wage workers, and youths – in Northern Virginia, to struggle against racism and sexism, to develop multi-racial leadership for social and economic justice, and to democratically control or own community resources including housing, education and health care.
