We believe in fighting for workers’ rights, economic justice and a sustainable global economy. We see that the struggles that workers face at the worksite are inseparable from the struggles workers face in their communities, and are committed to connecting our movement to a broader vision of global justice.

We believe in organizing and direct action. Organizing, educating, and mobilizing working people and their allies is key to building power.

We believe in solidarity. Together we have more power and win fights that none of us could win alone.  Jobs with Justice builds locally accountable multiracial coalitions of labor, community, faith-based and student organizations that are part of a national network. We build relationships for the long haul that are rooted in the principles of reciprocity, mutual respect, and the conviction that our struggles for social justice cannot be separated.

We believe in victories. We build power through winning our campaigns for workers’ rights and economic justice. We engage in strategic fights that address the root causes of the problems facing workers and communities.

Jobs with Justice San Francisco is part of a national network of over 40 local coalitions in 25 states. We participate in nationally coordinated activities and support JwJ coalitions in other parts of the country.
