Here is an article an yet another amazing non-profit doing great work for Austin.  The Worker's Defense Project was born when employees of immigrant shelter Casa Marianella saw a need for low wage worker advocacy.  Cristina Tzintzún and Emily Timms were the volunteers who took it to the next level, and made it the organization it is today.
