    Partnering Congregations

At WIN, we believe that every person has God-given dignity that must be respected in the workplace. We honor our Creator by seeking justice that enables workers to share in the fruits of their labor.

While our diverse faiths may disagree on some matters, all religions believe in justice for the poor and vulnerable.

When your congregation joins Workers Interfaith Network, you'll be uniting with other people of faith working locally to ensure that jobs in our community pay living wages, that they provide family benefits, and that workers' dignity and rights are respected. Since we were founded in 2002, we have brought together people of faith and workers to win concrete improvements in pay and working conditions for low-wage workers.

Become a Partnering Congregation

Deepen your congregation's commitment to justice for working people by becoming a Partnering Congregation with Workers Interfaith Network. Partnering Congregations covenant that in their worship, study, living, and giving, they will seek justice for workers and engage their members in the work of Workers Interfaith Network.

Workers Interfaith Network has many worship, study, and action resources available for congregations. Partnering Congregations are also entitled to 4 free individual Workers Interfaith Network memberships for congregational leaders.

Most Partnering Congregations give between $100 to $500 a year, depending on the size of their congregation. What is important is your congregation's commitment- no matter what  you can afford to give.

Incorporate Worker Justice Into Your Worship and Education

Help your congregation become more aware of the issues low-wage workers face through educational and worship resources provided by Workers Interfaith Network. Many congregations participate in our special Labor in the Pulpits program, which provides worship resources and speakers to congregations for their worship services on Labor Day weekend. Speakers are also available year-round to share about the work of the Workers Interfaith Network. Contact Rev. Rebekah Gienapp to request a speaker.

Encourage Your Members to Take Action

Whether taking part in a prayer vigil with workers who have been fired for speaking for their rights; attending a County Commission meeting where a living wage vote will be held; joining a delegation to meet with company managers, or writing letters to companies urging them to treat their workers with dignity and respect, Workers Interfaith Network provides opportunities for concrete actions that will bring greater justice for workers in our community. Use the box in the upper right corner of this page to sign up for WIN's email alerts to receive action opportunities you can share with other members of your congregation.
