AFSC's economic justice goal area helps people meet basic needs for food, shelter, sustenance, healthcare, and education, and also to work for a just and sustainable global economy.  AFSC's economic justice programs work with community partners to find solutions to local problems.  Our economic justice "umbrella" also unites AFSC staff and volunteers in common action to address the root causes of injustice, such as low wages and unfair trade policies.  AFSC's "Invest in Peace and Justice" campaign offers workshops on today's economic crisis and is working for new budget priorities and ways to increase justice for workers in the U.S. and around the world.
