Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice formed in April of 2011 and is affiliated with the national Jobs with Justice. We are a nonprofit, nonpartisan coalition of labor unions, community organizations, faith-based groups and individuals working to make a difference in the lives of workers and communities in the greater Chicago Metro area. We work with workers to support each other, develop community relationships and advocate for policies that create sustainable, living wage jobs. We challenge the existing economic inequalities in our society and call for a more equal economy. We offer strategic leadership, public advocacy and activist training to shape the public discourse on workers’ rights and the economy.
