Take the Jobs with Justice pledge!
Top Pun is a member of Jobs with Justice, having
taken the Jobs with Justice pledge, saying:
"I'll be there! During the next year, I will be there at least
five times for someone else's fight, as well as my own. If enough of us
are there, we'll all start winning.
...standing up for our rights as
working people to a decent standard of living.
...supporting the right of all
workers to organize and bargain collectively
...fighting for secure family-wage
jobs in the face of corporate attacks on working people and our communities
...organizing the unorganized to
take aggressive action to secure a better economic future for all of us.
...mobilizing those already
organized to join the fight for jobs with justice."

Founded in 1987, JwJ's mission is to improve working people's standard of
living, fight for job security, and protect workers' right to organize.
JwJ's core belief is that in order to be successful, workers' rights
struggles have to be part of a larger campaign for economic and social
justice. To that end, JwJ has created a network of local coalitions that
connect labor, faith-based, community, and student organizations to work
together on workplace and community social justice campaigns.
with Justice coalitions now exist in over 40 cities in 29 states in all
regions of the country, made up of both member organizations and thousands
of individual activists who sign the Jobs with Justice pledge to be there
five times a year for someone else's struggle as well as their own. JwJ
creates strategic alliances locally and among organizations nationally to
develop a broad base of support. By building a base of diverse
constituencies at the local level as well as providing training,
coordination, and networking at the national level, Jobs with Justice is
re-building the infrastructure that gives communities a sense of their own
and foremost, Jobs with Justice is about action. Action wins concrete
victories. Creative direct action empowers activists. Collective action
builds the relationships that make coalitions work. Our coalitions take
action around all kinds of issues, from the right to organize a union to
living wage to global justice to students rights.
