Tradesworker Equity Council

"An unheard voice is an action not taken"

An integral part of the Safe from Hate Alliance, the Tradesworker Equity Council (TEC) centers tradesworker voices, including those most harmed by toxic jobsite culture – women, Black, Indigenous, other People of Color (BIPOC), and LGBTQ+ tradesworkers, in the work of the Safe from Hate Alliance.

The Tradesworker Equity Council serves to provide an equity lens to the Safe from Hate Alliance members in the collective work to create safe and respectful jobsites for all workers.
