1998, comprised of clergy, lay leaders, and labor union
representation. Our active supporters span Miami-Dade and
Broward counties, and include clergy and lay leaders,
congregants, congregations, and judicatories. SFIWJ is currently
one of sixty-five affiliates in the national Interfaith Worker
Justice network, which was founded in 1991.
SFIWJ began with a vision of the “faith community serving as a
prophetic voice and spiritual advocate that is aware of the plight
of workers, especially low-wage workers, and those victimized
by social injustice.”
We produced a workers’ rights manual and launched a Workers’
Rights Initiative to protect the legal rights and benefits of low-
wage workers, many of whom are immigrants.
We also educate and involve our communities in the support of
workers’ rights and promoting access to fair employment.
SFIWJ supports a worker’s entitlement to collectively organize
in the workplace as a means to self-sufficiency.
