CFL in the News

YES! Magazine tells the story of Damayan Cleaning Cooperative member Judith Daluz – a survivor of human trafficking, labor exploitation and abuse at the hands of past employers, who went on to start a business with other Filipina women and is now her own boss. By supporting the growth of worker owned cooperatives like Damayan through technical assistance, valuable trainings and resources, CFL helps to empower workers who have been previously silenced and marginalized.

The Center for Family Life was recently mentioned in Forbes and the Democracy Collaborative Cities Building Community Wealth report, to highlight the importance of promoting resilient local communities by strengthening locally-rooted businesses with worker cooperatives.  Si Se Puede was specifically featured in the report to illustrate the successful Brooklyn cooperative’s positive impact on worker wages, schedule flexibility, and stability!
