Fabricio also led Philadelphia’s Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC) starting in 2008, one of the first workers centers of its kind, including a campaign for a citywide paid sick days policy. Fabricio joined the POWER staff in 2014 and leads organizing for congregations in North and Northeast Philadelphia.
