MA: New England United For Justice

New England United for Justice is a non-profit membership-based organization that represents diverse low and moderate income families who want to promote social justice and become more involved in improving their neighborhood, city and state.  Working like a union of community people, our members are able to address small and large issues that families care about that affect the quality of everyday life for the people in our city and state. We are a direct action based organization that uses the power of people and education to influence policy changes that affect low to moderate income neighborhoods. New England United for Justice has made the Paid Sick Days Act a top priority in successive legislative sessions.
