A place for people who want to stop the wealthy few from mistreating and dividing us - and who want to start getting the dignity we deserve.
Pledge to stand up for other workers in Missouri
We envision a Missouri where:
The economy and public infrastructure are strong and good jobs are plentiful
The right of all workers to organize and collectively bargain is protected
Opportunity exists for all regardless of race, identity, or immigration status
All are assured economic security and a safe, healthy life from the cradle to the grave
White supremacy is understood, challenged, and dismantled
We Build Power.
Together we win tangible victories for all working people: Black, Brown, and white. We work to build power through action and strong relationships that are rooted in justice, equity, and solidarity. We don’t do the work as performance. We perform the work to build real power and real wins for all of us.
We Organize Together.
We work to build workplaces, neighborhoods, cities, states, and a country where each of us have what we need for a safe and healthy life from cradle to grave. We show up for each other no matter what zip code you live in, what job you have, where you’re from, who you love, or what race you are.
We Name Names.
There is a small group of wealthy white people working to keep the rest of us divided so they can call all the shots. They don’t want to see working people working together, and they definitely don’t want to share what should be rightfully ours.
That’s why we run campaigns. We confront abuse and injustice. We get our issues in the news and on the ballot. We build relationships. We build consciousness. And we build collective power to force them to do what’s right.
Since 1999, MO JWJ has shown up for workers across the state. We won minimum wage increases. We expanded Medicaid. We stop corporations from outsourcing our jobs and privatizing our public goods. We do big things.
