2010 has been a challenging year for workers. Many have given up on a vision of full employment, fair pay for workers, and decent benefits. While it is tempting to give in to that sense of hopelessness and resignation, now is not the time to stand back on issues of fair jobs and the economy. We must act -- together.
For 2011, IWJ has mapped out a plan that will address issues of joblessness, wage theft and workplace injustices head-on. Among other things, we plan to organize and support at least 1,000 congregation-based job support committees, ratchet up our campaign against wage theft and continue to mobilize religious communities in campaigns to raise the bar for workplace standards.
We cannot do all that alone! We need your support. If you haven't already, please consider making a year-end contribution to support IWJ's campaigns and programs in 2011. Your contribution will be valued and used wisely to challenge despair and strategically improve wages, benefits and working conditions for our sisters and brothers.
To make a year-end gift, you can either mail a check to Interfaith Worker Justice, 1020 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Chicago, IL 60660, or donate online by clicking here. For questions or more info, please contact me, Cathy Junia, at 773-728-8400 x 42 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
