The Migrant Workers Rights Network (MWRN) is a membership based organization for migrant workers from Myanmar residing and working mainly in Thailand. MWRN was founded on March 29, 2009 by a group of nine Myanmar migrant leaders who strongly believed that empowerment of migrants is the best way for migrants to protect themselves in their vulnerable situation as migrant workers in Thailand. The founders’ goal for MWRN is to promote and strengthen Myanmar migrant workers’ rights, eventually across the whole globe, by raising awareness, promoting access to justice and negotiating processes with employers and officials and advocating for policy change.
