DC Jobs with Justice
Yannik Omictin (he/him) is the Wage Theft Outreach Fellowship Coordinator with DC Jobs with Justice, training budding organizers in canvassing strategy and base-building while empowering workers with the tools and knowledge to stand up for their rights in the workplace. He dipped his toes in organizing in the Bay Area, where he grew up, working with Filipino- and Chinese-American tenants fighting displacement. Outside of his day job he serves as a local elected official on the Advisory Neighborhood Commission for his neighborhood, where he works to prevent encampment evictions and help unhoused folks access sustainable housing.
DC Jobs with Justice is a dynamic coalition of labor organizations, community groups, faith-based organizations, and student groups dedicated to protecting the rights of working people, supporting community struggles, and promoting racial justice to build a more just society.
Workers rights are civil rights. We are committed to the creation of living wage jobs, support of economic and social justice here and abroad, and maintaining pressure to demand corporate accountability in our communities, and creating a fair and just future for communities of color. In its work, DC Jobs with Justice gives priority to the struggles impacting the most vulnerable workers in our community: low-wage workers, immigrants, people of color, women, youth and seniors. We are committed to creating an organization that is fully inclusive and welcoming to everyone.
