ABOUT THE TEAM
The Strategic Campaigns team works with labor unions, advocacy organizations, nonprofits, partners in entertainment, philanthropic foundations and others focused on racial and economic justice. We work on campaigns led by working people across the economy who are fighting to raise pay, win or protect the right to a union and make sure our economy works for everyone. We help workers take on some of the largest, most powerful corporations and fight back against an economic and political system stacked in favor of the wealthy. Our work helps improve the lives of families and communities, with a particular focus on communities of color, and takes aim at the economic and political inequality that threatens our democracy.
