Who We ArePlease consider joining Toledo Area Jobs with Justice & Interfaith Worker Justice Coalition (JwJ). We are a grassroots, volunteer organization committed to worker justice. Toledo JwJ is one of 40 chartered members of the National Jobs with Justice Network and National Interfaith Worker Justice Coalition.
Since its inception in 2002, Toledo Jobs with Justice has been instrumental in working to improve the rights of workers and residents throughout the community. Activities which Jobs with Justice either directly sponsored or actively co-sponsored include:
Bridge the Gap for Healthcare; Campaign for Ohio’s Future; Healthcare Action Day; Erase the Hate; Sunoco Snubs Local Workers Campaign; Boycott of Mt Olive Pickles; Budget Cut Olympics; March for Freedom and Justice; Toledo City Council Point of Sale Ordinance; Call to Renewal Bus Tour; and numerous protests of Wal-Mart, Job Losses and the effects of Outsourcing, Minimum Wage and Protecting Collective Bargaining Rights.
Toledo Area Jobs with Justice has a monthly Steering Committee meeting on the fourth Monday of each month. Organizations are encouraged to ask members to support Jobs with Justice Actions and sign Jobs with Justice Pledge Cards. The Pledge is to come out 5 times a year in support of someone else’s struggle. With your active support, we can continue to show the effects of these issues on the whole community. This organization of labor, social justice, faith communities and individuals is uniquely positioned to shift the workers’ justice debate to issues at the heart of family and community values. Together we can and are making a difference.
