Based in Silicon Valley, Working Partnerships USA tackles the root causes of inequality and poverty by leading collaborative campaigns for quality jobs, healthy communities, equitable growth and a vibrant democracy.
Since our founding in 1995, we’ve been pioneering policy campaigns that are then adopted across the nation — from the groundbreaking Children’s Health Initiative, to raising the minimum wage, Gig Workers Rising, and winning the largest people-driven community benefits package for San José. And we are committed to continue this work until we build an economy that leaves no family behind, and prioritizes people over profits.
We stand with the labor movement, and its history of confronting the power of capital to improve the lives of working people across this country – now and in the future.
We stand for racial justice and the excluded workers and communities who have fought for hundreds of years to step out of the shadows and lead.
We stand for a government that protects the vulnerable, invests in our greatest challenges, and inspires us all to step up and take action.
We stand for climate justice as stewards of our communities’ health and the sustainability of our environment for generations to come.
Our Mission and Vision
We are building an inclusive regional economy where workers and neighborhoods thrive, and where people of color, immigrants, women, and low-income residents have an equal voice and share equally in regional prosperity.
Our mission is to lead collaborative campaigns that tackle the root causes of inequality and poverty by advocating for quality jobs, healthy communities, equitable growth and a vibrant democracy, and build the governing power of working families, low-income residents and tenants, and communities of color to lead and govern, and hold elected leaders accountable to their constituents.
