Laine Romero Alston
Laine Romero-Alston manages the Promoting the Next Generation Workforce Strategies portfolio, an initiative of the Quality Employment unit. She focused on building the capacity of worker centers to provide leadership, education and training opportunities for the substantially low-wage and immigrant workforce, primarily in four specific sectors: healthcare, day labor and construction, restaurant work, and domestic work.
Before joining the foundation in 2011, Laine was the Economic Justice program officer at the Solidago Foundation, where she supported efforts to help marginalized, particularly low-wage immigrants and workers of color, actively engage in strategies that foster their own economic well-being and to promote broader systemic economic and social change. In addition, Laine oversaw a Media Justice and Strategic Communications program for the Frances Fund to develop and integrate strategic communications into economic and social justice movement efforts.
