Sign on to the English Works Campaign

agrees to support and participate in the English Works Campaign.
As a signatory to English Works, our organization agrees to be listed on English Works materials and will have a seat on the Campaign Committee.
We enter into this voluntary agreement with English Works in a spirit of partnership and collaboration, and with a vision of a Commonwealth that provides all residents with a pathway to economic self-sufficiency; ensures a stable, skilled workforce for Massachusetts businesses today and in the future; and integrates immigrants into the fabric of our economy, communities and shared civic life.

Our Goals

  • Increased business investment in ESOL programs
  • Increased number of limited English proficient immigrants enrolled in ESOL classes that assist them in entering, remaining, and advancing in the labor market
  • Creation of a flexible pool of public resources for workplace ESOL
  • Heightened labor, business, civic, and community voices in ESOL policy, advocacy, and planning
  • Increased recognition by policy makers and business leaders of the critical role of immigrants and ESOL to the pursuit of the “American Dream” and to the success of the Massachusetts economy.
