Building a Just and Sacred Society

CLUE brings together clergy and lay leaders of all faiths with the marginalized, the unheard, and the least protected—low-wage workers—in the cause of a just economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top.

The Power of Our Advocacy

We cultivate a network of more than 900 religious leaders, partnering with allied community organizations and labor unions to advocate for better working conditions, and with lawmakers to establish policies that improve a lot of workers and their families.

Hotel Workers Win!

I used to feel so much stress. Managers made us work so hard, they gave us too many things to do in eight hours, the work of 2 or 3 people, and if you couldn’t finish you would get in trouble. They made us feel like we were slaves. I came home from work every day so sad and tired that my kids would ask, “What’s wrong Daddy. Is everything okay?”
