Comite Fronterizo de Obrer@s (CFO: Border Committee of Women Workers) is an independent organization of current and former maquiladora workers in seven Mexican border towns. The CFO facilitates home meetings, where workers learn of their legal rights under Mexico's Federal Labor Law, and develop strategies to assert these rights in their factories. For over two decades, the CFO has helped thousands of workers gain economic benefits, improve labor conditions, and strengthen their communities.

Fuerza Unida (United Force) emerged from the sustained struggle of Levi Strauss workers to gain a just settlement when the company abruptly shut down its San Antonio plant in 1990, firing 1,150 workers. Today, former Levi Strauss workers continue to lead this community organization in human rights and economic justice initiatives. Fuerza Unida has created several programs in benefit of the community, including its sewing cooperative, catering service, food bank, and youth program.
