Who We Are:

The mission of the Pomona Economic Opportunity Center (PEOC) is to strengthen and empower the low-wage, immigrant community in Pomona, CA and the Inland Empire. Our core work is to provide tools and resources for all immigrant workers and immigrant residents to improve their quality of life. We provide an opportunity for day laborers, household workers, street vendors, warehouse workers and other low-wage immigrant workers in the community to find safe work at a fair wage, to organize and advocate for themselves in relation to policies that impact their lives, to obtain new trades and skills that improve their quality of life, and to improve the overall conditions for all immigrant workers and immigrant residents in the IE.

To achieve these goals the PEOC engages in a variety of activities including job development, providing educational opportunities on workers’ rights and immigrant rights, leadership development, immigration document preparation and grassroots advocacy to promote or change policies that impact low-wage immigrant workers. In addition to its main site in Pomona, the PEOC organizes day laborer corners in the Inland Empire in the cities of Rancho Cucamonga, San Bernardino, Corona and Riverside. Since 2015, the PEOC has connected with household workers to develop the CLEAR program. CLEAR (Compañeras, Lideres, Emprendedoras, Aliadas, y Revolucionarias) are a group of women workers who are partners, leaders, entrepreneurs, allies, and revolutionaries in our communities and skilled in various jobs. The CLEAR program provides women from the city of Pomona and the surrounding regions access to greater job options and economic self-reliance while also providing opportunities for their growth in professional and leadership development.
