Since its launch, over 1.2 million workers have used Contratados.org—CDM’s award-winning, crowdsourced ‘Yelp for migrant workers’—to denounce exploitation, know their rights and access relevant news. In the last year alone, the site has averaged 1,000 daily unique visitors.
Migrant Women’s Project
CDM’s Migrant Women’s Project (ProMuMi) empowers migrant women to combat abuse and discrimination. Through ProMuMi, migrant women have successfully advocated for protections that have significantly improved recruitment and working conditions for migrant women, particularly for women working in the Maryland crab industry under H-2B visas.

CDM represents migrant workers in strategic, high-impact litigation and has won legal victories establishing important precedents to protect low-wage workers’ rights to safe working conditions and fair wages. Learn more.
