Donor-Advised Grantee: Interfaith Worker Justice

interfaith worker justiceInterfaith Worker Justice (IWJ) is a network of people of faith that speaks about religious values as a way to educate, organize, and mobilize. IWJ works withing religious communities on issues and campaigns that will improve wages, benefits, and conditions for workers, and give voice to workers, especially workers in low-wage jobs.

IWJ envisions the religious community, acting on its values in creative and strategic ways, as a powerful leader in creating and sustaining a nation where all workers share in the prosperity of our society, enjoy the fundamental human right to organize, and lead dignified lives as a result of their labor. Employers have a responsibility to respect these rights; and elected officials have a responsibility to create public policies that promote and enforce these rights.
