Educating, advocating & organizing for quality jobs with living wages and benefits
The Economic Justice Coalition is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Athens, Georgia
The Workers Center at EJC
Our mission is to educate, advocate and organize for quality jobs with living wages and benefits, with an explicit commitment to build worker power within BIPOC communities in Northeast Georgia. We accomplish this through voter registration & civic engagement, case management for workplace grievances, incubating cooperatively-owned businesses, and collective action to support organizing workers. By empowering workers to connect their working-conditions and living-conditions directly to the policy and legislation impacting them, we are bringing about positive change in our communities.
