Everyone has the right to live and work in dignity.
All labor is valued and should be free from stigma and shame.
Workers should have voice and agency in choosing their place of employment.
Workers in every sector deserve worker protections.
Everyone deserves safe and fair working conditions regardless of gender identity, racial identity, immigration status or employment status.
Workplaces should be free from discrimination, sexual harassment, abuse and forced labor.
The Worker Justice & Dignity Fund creates the conditions for all people to live and work in dignity.
We center the voices and vision of those most impacted by injustice to reimagine and build an economy that works for everyone. Here’s how our grantees describe the future we’re creating today.
Lasting social change often requires sustained action over time. We trust our grantees to know what is needed and make long term investments to support their visionary leadership.
Cohort-wide convenings to support healthy, sustainable leaders and organizations
We address the root causes that lead to worker exploitation. By resourcing sectors historically excluded from worker protections, we seek to build worker power and transform the system.
