Our 750+ members come from a wide range of backgrounds, including from over 15 countries and from over 40 cities across Southeast Michigan. Our members are predominantly African-Americans, Latinos and immigrants who live in and around the city of Detroit.
Restaurant workers become members of ROC-Michigan by attending an orientation at our Detroit office. As members of ROC-Michigan, restaurant workers can sign up for professional skills training, job placement, and resume assistance, as well as career coaching services.
Restauarant workers can also participate in our member-led organizing committees, intensive Leadership Institute, and monthly membership meetings. In these spaces, our members come together to develop skils, strategies, and tactics to make effective change in their workplaces and in their communities.
Over the years, hundreds of restaurant workers have participated in ROC-Michigan’s organizing and leadership development programs, raising their voices in their workplaces, in their neighborhoods, and before city, state, and federal public officials.
