Protecting the Rights of Migrant Workers

Thanks to Tere Maya

Founded in 2005, Centro de los Derechos del Migrante, Inc. (CDM) is the first transnational workers' rights law center based in Mexico to focus on U.S. workplace rights.

Since its founding, CDM has been driven by its mission to improve the conditions of low-wage workers in the U.S. 

CDM has met with more than 6,000 people in 23 states across Mexico to ensure that migrants know their rights before they cross the border.

CDM has collaborated with workers and allies to recover more than five million dollars in unpaid wages and to establish important legal precedents and policies to protect migrants all along the migrant stream.

CDM’s binational, multilingual staff and geographic reach have grown in response to increasing needs for its advocacy and services. Today, with headquarters in Mexico City, two satellite offices in Juxtlhuaca, Oaxaca and Baltimore, Maryland, and advocates in Zacatecas, CDM has established itself as a powerful, transnational agent of change.
