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 low-­income people 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 low­-income people 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 low­-income consumers.
