The Partnership for Working Families

The Partnership for Working Families, a national network of leading local advocacy organizations, supports innovative solutions to pressing economic and environmental problems.  We believe the power for real change is rooted in cities, where people live, work and organize.  Combining insightful research, cutting edge public policy, and broad alliance building, our affiliates collaborate on multi-city campaigns to transform industry practices, creating quality jobs, shared prosperity, and a healthy environment.

Since 2006, our network has won more than 70 campaigns coast to coast.  Grounded in community and worker organizing and innovative policy work, our network is maximizing communites' return on massive public investments in development projects and industries.  Our victories have improved more than 370,000 jobs, reducing poverty and rebuilding the middle class.
