THE STORY:

Interfaith Worker Justice wrote -

This is a critical moment for people who believe in dignity and justice. In the days after the elections, there was a marked increase in hate crimes across the country. As the nation braces for the impact a Trump presidency, we have reason to fear workplace conditions will get frighteningly worse for millions of employees in low-wage industries, most of them women, people of color, and immigrants.

It’s going to be a long, hard-fought four years. Interfaith Worker Justice (IWJ) is ready for this fight – but we need your help!

PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A PLEDGE IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDING WORKERS' RIGHTS.

Make a one-time gift by donating to this fundraiser now OR better yet, sign up to be a monthly sustainer by joining our FAITHFUL GIVERS CLUB. 

We must not kid ourselves. Whether it’s health and safety on the job, the ability to recover stolen wages from unscrupulous employers or progress towards a living wage, we can’t assume any worker justice victory is safe from being rolled back under the new administration.

We are committed to defending worker rights and the gains that working people have made since the inception of the labor movement.

We are committed to using every resource at our disposal to reject the hateful, racist, and sexist elements of Trump’s presidency that threaten our families, workplaces, and communities.

Please consider donating generously today OR sign up to be a monthly sustainer by joining our FAITHFUL GIVERS CLUB. 

We will not be bullied. We will not cower. BUT we cannot do this alone. We need your light, love, and partnership to make our work possible!

We will be there to fight every step of the way to defend worker justice and the values of diversity and egalitarianism that are the cornerstones of our nation. WILL YOU JOIN US?

 

WHY IWJ:
IWJ is ideally placed to make a significant difference in the challenging years ahead. We are a national network that builds collective power by advancing the rights of workers through unions, worker centers and other expressions of the labor movement and by engaging diverse faith communities and allies in joint action, from grassroots organizing to shaping policy at the local, state and national levels.
