Chicago Jobs with Justice is a coalition of labor, faith, and community organizations working in coalition to win campaigns for workers' rights and social and economic justice.  We are the local chapter of the national Jobs with Justice network. We were founded in 1991.

 We are a non-profit, non-partisan 501c3 organization and all donations are tax deductible.  We absolutely depend on individual donors to help fund our work, so please donate (and thanks!) 

We are always in the streets standing in solidarity with working people.  You definitely want to be on our email list, to make sure you know what's happening in organizing in Chicago and Illinois.

Our coalition members lead our committees: the Workers Rights Board, the Labor Committee on Immigrant Worker Rights  and the Solidarity Committee.


Susan Hurley, Chicago Jobs with Justice Executive Director. Susan is a graduate of Northern Illinois University with a B.A. in Political Science, and has worked as a community, labor, and political organizer prior to coming to Chicago Jobs with Justice.
