We Are a Federation of Regional Leaders

The Partnership for Working Families is a national network of leading regional advocacy organizations who support innovative solutions to our nation’s economic and environmental problems.

Promoting Policies to Strengthen Our Communities

Together we are a voice for working families, promoting policies that create quality jobs and thriving, healthy communities.  We advance innovative campaigns, provide issue specific resources and share winning strategies and lessons with allies dedicated to creating a new economy that creates opportunity for all.

Building Grassroots Alliances that Win Campaigns

The Partnership and affiliates share the goal of developing powerful local organizations that pursue and win campaigns that connect and enhance worker and community organizing, expand democracy and combat poverty by raising job standards and addressing the needs of low-income communities.

Supporting New Leaders Advocating Social Justice Values

We share a commitment to building labor and community power and base-building, developing new leaders and organizing strong regional and national alliances based on mutual self-interest and respect.

Creating Jobs that Support Working Families

We maintain a commitment to racial justice and belief that regional organizing around power-building agendas can help transform the poverty and inequality that are endemic to metropolitan regions.
