JwJ is building a strong, progressive labor movement that works in coalition with community, faith, and student organizations to build a broader global movement for economic and social justice.
We believe in long-term multi-issue coalition building, grassroots base-building and organizing, and strategic direct action as the foundation for building a grassroots movement, and we believe that by engaging a broad community of allies, we can win bigger victories. Nearly 100,000 people have signed the Jobs with Justice pledge to Be There at least five times a year for someone else’s struggle as well as their own. In more than 40 cities in 25 states across the country, we are building coalitions of labor, religious, student and community organizations that are committed to each other for the long haul. At JwJ, solidarity is a two-way street: when communities come out for unions, they can expect unions to come out for them. Our coalitions work on a broad range of issues including workers' rights, health care, immigrant rights, global justice, economic development, living wage, and more.
1. We believe in direct action and militancy. Mobilizing working people and their allies is key to building power.
2. We believe in solidarity. We are there for one another’s fights and unite to win struggles that none of us could win alone.
3. We believe in victories. We build power through winning campaigns for workers’ rights and economic justice.
