Economic Justice

Economic security is critical to ensure that individuals can meet their basic needs and communities can thrive.

The Shriver Center works to ensure that people with low income have access to income supports, such as cash assistance and food and nutrition benefits, 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 programs.
  • 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 move out of poverty.
  • We work to restrict abusive practices like payday lending and to support access to mainstream financial services and products for consumers with low income.
