In Their Own Words

United for a Fair Economy challenges the concentration of wealth and power that corrupts democracy, deepens the racial divide and tears communities apart. We use popular economics education, trainings, and creative communications to support social movements working for a resilient, sustainable and equitable economy. We support movements fighting for a fair economy through three main programs: 1. Economics for Everyone which uses participatory education to inspire dialogue about the rules of the economy and how they impact our lives. We've helped over 110,000 people see their stake in building a fair economy and we have trained over 2,500 trainers. 2. The Responsible Wealth Project which is a network of business leaders, investors, and inheritors in the richest 5% of wealth and/or income in the U.S. who believe that growing inequality is not in their best interest, and use their influential and often surprising voices in the fight for a fair economy. 3. Our Inclusive Economy Network brings UFE’s toolkit to state-based and regional organizing projects and policy change campaigns.We are currently supporting the Living Wage Network and a Training Network for the Raising Wages North Carolina Coalition. We also use create communications to create infographics, reports and resources about economic inequality including our yearly State of the Dream report. We have three offices- our main office in Boston, MA, as well as staff in Durham, NC and St. Paul, MN.
