Mission Statement

Kentucky Jobs with Justice is a broad-based coalition of community, faith, labor, and students united to promote, protect and improve the quality of life of all workers by empowering individuals and organizations to engage in collective action for economic and social justice.

We connect activists to issues and provide them with tools for action.
At our core, we are about action, diversity, full inclusion, effectiveness, and providing leadership where needed.

Description

KY JwJ was founded in 1992 when community and church activists joined to support UNITE! in a fight for fair contract for workers against Louisville Manufacturing. KY JwJ has since grown to a coalition of more than 50 organizational members and 1800 individual activists who have pledged to "be there five times for someone else's fight as well as my own."

We are part of National Jobs with Justice (http://www.jwj.org/)

National Jobs with Justice was founded in 1987 with a mission to improve working people's standard of living, fight for job security, and protect workers' right to organize. JwJ's core belief is that in order to be successful, workers' rights struggles have to be part of a larger campaign for economic and social justice. To that end, JwJ has created a network of local coalitions that connect labor, faith-based, community, and student organizations to work together on workplace and community social justice campaigns.
