ICCR’s Advancing Worker Justice (AWJ) program brings shareholder advocates and allied worker-led and focused organizations together to advance dignity and justice for all working people. We seek to activate our investments, strategic partnerships, and movement-building strategies to influence workplace practices, build worker power, and achieve meaningful gains for workers’ rights in the U.S. and Canada.
