This nine-month leadership development program is designed for individuals interested in learning how to advocate for economic and racial justice on behalf of their peers and community.

Graduates work as change agents, improving the lives of working-class people throughout Michigan.

Who We Are

Founded in 2008, the Michigan Chapter is a large and active chapter of ROC United. We consist of thousands of restaurant workers, High Road employers and engaged consumers statewide, who are united together to improve working conditions and raise wages in the restaurant industry.

The Michigan Chapter, as it reflects the mission and vision of ROC United, aims to advance the interests of restaurant workers by engaging them as leaders in our organizing efforts, connecting them with other restaurant workers, High Road restaurateurs, policy-makers, consumers, voters, and institutions, and expanding and deepening their skills and voices in the industry.
