Mission

Interfaith Worker Justice is a national network that calls upon religious values to improve wages, benefits and working conditions for workers by educating and organizing present and future religious leaders, interfaith coalitions and workers centers.
IWJ envisions the religious community, acting on its values in creative and strategic ways, as a powerful leader in creating and sustaining a nation where all workers share in the prosperity of our society, enjoy the fundamental human right to organize, and lead dignified lives as a result of their labor.

Organizing and Advocacy Campaigns

IWJ launched its Stop Wage Theft Campaign in 2009 in response to the outcry against the illegal and immoral crime of stealing wages from workers. Wage theft affects millions of workers, especially those in low-wage jobs. Over the last two years, IWJ has gotten the issue of wage theft on the national agenda by educating and mobilizing denominational and faith leaders, labor union, workers centers, attorney organizations, worker rights, civil rights and immigration advocacy organizations, policy leaders, media and student groups. Visit www.iwj.org/index.cfm/wage-theft for more information on the campaign.With unemployment rates at an all-time high, IWJ is organizing religious and denominational leaders to provide prophetic vision on the crisis of the long-term unemployment crisis. So far, IWJ has put together web-based resources for congregations to assist unemployed workers and families. IWJ also supports legislation to extend unemployment insurance and to create jobs.
 
IWJ's Immigration Reform Program engages low-wage workers all over the country in a grassroots campaign to support rational, just and moral immigration reform.
