About

We’re a coalition of organizers who want solutions that will actually allow all of us to survive.

The american working-class has always been stronger and more unified than we are led to believe. Our time to come together is now. While we stay nimble in our approach and tactics, the following are the core principles that guide our journey:

Ignite

We’re not afraid of tackling the most difficult issues and calling out inequality and oppression stemming in the darkness.

Focus

We empower the many poor and working people from all walks of life to take action and stand up for themselves and others.

Rejoice

One step at a time, our goal is to achieve a future state of living and thriving, rather than the current painful surviving.

Unite

By fostering a sense of community and inclusion, we can heal and lift each other up when we hit roadblocks along the way.

Boost

The more we challenge our assumptions and focus on our most pressing issues, the more equipped we’ll be to drive meaningful change.

Partners

We build alongside anchor organizations

In order to build the largest multiracial working-class coalition in the United States, we’ll need to do it together. Get to know Unemployed Workers United’s anchor organizations below.
