Economic Justice

Everyone should be able to meet their basic needs.

The Shriver Center works to ensure that low-income and working people have access to the supports that provide a basic level of economic stability.

  • We advocate for fair and​ adequately funded​ programs that help people with low income meet their basic needs.
  • We work to end hunger by expanding access to food and nutrition assistance.
  • We advocate for fair employment policies and practices, including the elimination of race and sex discrimination and an adequate minimum wage.
  • We campaign for work supports, like child care assistance and job training programs, that help people secure and maintain gainful employment.
  • We push state and federal governments to adopt fair and progressive tax policies.
  • We push to ensure immigrant populations seeking assistance are protected and served.
