Restaurant Opportunities Center of Minnesota (ROC-MN), a chapter of ROC United, organizes restaurant workers for fair wages and dignified working conditions; and is committed to being part of local movements for economic, gender, and racial justice.

As part of its “Behind the Kitchen Door” series, ROC-MN will lead a comprehensive study about the conditions across the local restaurant industry. The organization will create a Twin Cities Advisory Board of movement partners, legal advocates, labor leaders, and industry stakeholders. This work will help ROC-MN identify the most pressing needs in the worker community and support its ongoing core organizing work.
