Funders for a Just Economy (FJE), formerly known as the Working Group on Labor and Community Partnerships, is a national network of funders committed to advancing the philanthropic conversation around economic justice and workplace issues. We are committed to placing organized labor, worker centers, worker justice campaigns, policy efforts, and organizing strategies at the center of our various efforts, and addressing the disparate impact of economic policies on people of color, women, migrants, and low-income individuals and families.
FJE is a gathering place for progressive conversations about working conditions for low-wage workers, workers’ health and safety, and community-based anti-poverty efforts. We invite our colleagues and partners in philanthropy to join FJE. This working group is comprised of local, regional, and national funders. Members meet regularly to share strategies, collaborate in learning opportunities, and deepen our knowledge of the latest organizing strategies and policies that shape the conversation on worker and economic justice.
