About UFE: Who We Are: We are a movement support organization, providing media capacity, face-to-face economic literacy education, and training resources to organizations and individuals who work to address the widening income and asset gaps in our country. 

What We Believe:

Our work is grounded in the belief that our country would be a far more democratic, prosperous, and caring community if we narrowed the vast gap between the wealthy and everyone else. Our constituency is broad and deep and includes both those directly hurt by economic disparity and those who benefit from it.

Our vision is of a global society where prosperity is better shared, where there is genuine equality of opportunity, where the power of concentrated money and corporations neither dominates the economy nor dictates the content of mass culture. We envision communities and nations that do not have dramatic disparities of income, wages, wealth, health, safety, respect, and opportunities for recreation and personal growth.

We aspire to build communities that are socially and environmentally sustainable, where children are cherished and nurtured, and cultural and racial differences among people are valued and celebrated. We envision an economy where the distinction between “labor” and “capital” is blurred – where everyone contributes to society with their labor and everyone benefits from society’s financial growth. We envision a society in which values, not profits alone, guide economic decisions.

The Need to Build a Movement:

To stop the march toward growing inequality, we must build a powerful fair economy movement that can contest the dominant economic policies and propose policies that ensure shared prosperity. There must be a stronger countervailing force to the power of concentrated corporate influence and wealth. Key elements of this movement include a revitalized labor movement and a stronger voice from religious communities and coalitions of civic organizations. We are at the early stage of such movement formation, laying the groundwork for future opportunities to promote broader political understanding and mass action.

We are dedicated to supporting such a movement through education, campaigns that build power to change policy, and creative tactics that infuse the economic justice movement with vision, humor, and hope..
