We are at a critical and terrifying moment for economic justice organizing. With the election of far-right Donald Trump and an incoming veto-proof Republican majority in the Pennsylvania Senate, we at Philadelphia Jobs with Justice are preparing for an unprecedented assault on our rights in our workplaces and our communities.
At both national and state levels, we can expect regressive legislation targeting women, wage workers, seniors, people of color, immigrants, and many more.
We take this threat extremely seriously. That's why, in the coming year, we’ll be using a five-point plan to work on city, state, and federal levels, fighting back against pro-corporate and unjust legislation.
