About Us

Interfaith Worker Justice (IWJ) has been a leader in the fight for economic and worker justice in the United States since 1996. The organization consists of a national network that builds collective power by advancing workers’ rights 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. Currently, IWJ has affiliated more than 60 organizations within the IWJ network, including a diversity of interfaith groups and worker centers.

IWJ works with its partners and allies to influence the national conversation on its core issues: wage theft, living wages, paid sick days and workplace standards, and protecting the rights of workers to organize. IWJ also works with and through its affiliated worker centers and interfaith bodies to organize and support workers in their campaigns and to pass pro-worker legislation at the local, state, and national levels. With a unique and growing network of advocates, IWJ influences both government and corporate policies throughout the United States.

IWJ is a national 501(c)(3) organization with a budget of approximately $1 million, skilled staff, a diverse board at the national level, and an amazing network of affiliates with powerful local leaders and activists. The IWJ network plays a critical role in the economic justice landscape across the country.
