Economic Justice

So much of what ails society is widening inequality. Understanding the impact of economic policy is core to UNFTR’s mission and connecting our audience with organizations fighting for economic justice is imperative if we are to live in a more equitable society.

United for a Fair Economy

United for a Fair Economy challenges the concentration of wealth and power that corrupts democracy, deepens the racial divide and tears communities apart. We use popular economics education, trainings, and creative communications to support social movements working for a resilient, sustainable and equitable economy.

Working America

Since 2003, Working America members have come together to build an America that works for all of us, not just the wealthy. Across the country, we’re fighting to create a better life for ourselves and our families one conversation at a time.


We strive to ensure all working people are treated fairly, with decent paychecks and benefits, safe jobs, dignity, and equal opportunities. We help people acquire valuable skills and job-readiness for the 21st century economy. In fact, we operate the largest training network outside the U.S. military.Our work is anchored in making sure everyone who works for a living has family-supporting wages and benefits and the ability to retire with dignity. We advance legislation to create good jobs by investing tax dollars in schools, roads, bridges, ports and airports, and improving the lives of workers through education, job training and a livable minimum wage. We advocate for strengthening Social Security and private pensions, ensuring fair tax policies, and making high-quality, affordable health care available to all. We fight for keeping good jobs at home by reforming trade rules, reindustrializing the U.S. economy and providing worker protections in the global economy. We stand firm in holding corporations accountable for their actions. We help make safe, equitable workplaces and give working people a collective voice to address workplace injustices without the fear of retaliation. We fight for social and economic justice and strive to vanquish oppression in all its forms.

Fight for a higher minimum wage

We’re changing the rules of the game to ensure ALL workers get the dignity and respect they deserve. For too long, rich CEOs and corporations have held all the power. It’s time to hold them accountable.

Industrial Workers of the World

The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) is a labor union representing nearly 9000 workers across North America. Established in 1905, the IWW is known for its high standards of democracy, transparency, multinationalism, and active use of the right to strike. The IWW is a general union that is open to workers from all industries and companies, rather than just one organization or particular sector. The IWW promotes the creation of "One Big Union" and contends that all workers should be united as a social class to supplant capitalism and wage labor with industrial democracy.

Progressive Labor Party

Progressive Labor Party (PLP) fights to destroy capitalism and the dictatorship of the capitalist class. We organize workers, soldiers and youth into a revolutionary movement for communism. Only the dictatorship of the working class — communism — can provide a lasting solution to the disaster that is today’s world for billions of people. This cannot be done through electoral politics, but requires a revolutionary movement and a mass Red Army led by PLP. Worldwide capitalism, in its relentless drive for profit, inevitably leads to war, fascism, poverty, disease, starvation and environmental destruction. The capitalist class, through its state power — governments, armies, police, schools and culture — maintains a dictatorship over the world’s workers. The capitalist dictatorship supports, and is supported by, the anti-working-class ideologies of racism, sexism, nationalism, individualism and religion.

Not One Penny

The GOP tax scam is a direct attack on working Americans, whether white, Black, or brown. It undermines our commitment to public education, health care, Medicare, and Medicaid, all to pay for tax cuts for millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations.

The tax scam may have passed, but the fight is far from over as Republicans consider even more tax breaks for the wealthy and well-connected. Middle-class families deserve better, which is why we will continue to fight back until the TrumpTax is repealed.

Talk Poverty—a project of the Center for American Progress—is dedicated to covering poverty in America by lifting up the voices of advocates, policymakers, and people struggling to make ends meet.

Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund

The National Women’s Law Center fights for gender justice—in the courts, in public policy, and in our society—working across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls. We use the law in all its forms to change culture and drive solutions to the gender inequity that shapes our society and to break down the barriers that harm all of us—especially women of color, LGBTQ people, and low-income women and families. For 50 years, we have been on the leading edge of every major legal and policy victory for women.
