Partnership for Working Families
The Partnership for Working Families is dedicated to building power and reshaping the economy and urban environment for workers and communities. Our movement shares a commitment to expanding and connecting community and worker organizing for quality jobs, affordable housing, shared prosperity, and a healthy environment.
In this era of hope, we are building our capacity to win big in cities, and adding it up to move a national agenda for change. Through strong alliances with environmental, labor, faith-based and civil rights organizations, we are dreaming and organizing together toward an economic expansion that rises above environmental and economic exploitation.
As our Partnership grows, we are moving industry-wide campaigns involving multiple cities to inform local and federal policy for the long haul. Our nationally coordinated efforts are creating good and green jobs through transforming ports and the goods movement sector, expanding construction career opportunities, and achieving transparent and inclusive government processes and development projects.
Getting involved with The Partnership for Working Families connects you to the growing community benefits movement--a cross-country network of groups that are working to negotiate community benefits agreements, promote innovative policy solutions to rebuild the middle class, and implement dynamic campaigns to build power for working families.
We urge you sign up to receive our news alerts that will keep you aware of the latest progress in our campaigns for a Clean & Safe Environment, Community Benefits & Responsible Development, and Good Jobs & Workers' Rights.
Watch CBAs: A Framework for Success, an interactive presentation with video that provides step-by-step advice for your coalition.
We'll let you know about opportunities to take action in the fight to help working families. Your voice can make a difference!
Please tell a friend about our important work, and help our movement grow.

The Partnership for Working Families will gain strength from your involvement!
