Welfare Rights Committee (WRC) is composed of and led by volunteer, multiracial, low-income women advocating for themselves and their communities. Working at the grassroots level, WRC aims to create a visible presence of low income families where welfare legislation is made, ensure that resources are distributed to them equitably, and reclaim the perception of welfare as fundamental to economic justice.
