We’re building a new "normal" for poor and working-class people.

There is no going back to “normal”, because normal was simply not working for most of us.

Unemployed Workers United is a movement project created to respond to our current economic and health crisis with solutions that will actually allow all of us to survive and thrive. We are anchored by 5 partnered national progressive organizations: People’s Action, United for Respect, Mijente, the National Black Workers’ Centers Project, and Working Families Party. Our focus is to organize with local grassroots organizations to engage unemployed and precarious workers on a number of issue-based campaigns.

By coming together, uniting our skills, powers and dreams we know that we can ensure employers, local governments and state governments to respond with real systemic changes to the issues of unemployment and excluded workers as the COVID-19 pandemic continues and towards a just economic recuperation that accounts for the well being of all of us not just the banks or the 1%.

Join the largest poor and working-class led movement fighting for a new "normal" that restores our dignity and guarantees education, quality healthcare, safety, and income security.

Let's unite our powers!
