Worker Justice Worship Resources
Workers Interfaith Network, along with our national organization Interfaith Worker Justice, offer many different worship resources from different faith traditions related to justice for workers.

Resources for your Labor Day weekend worship service
Labor Day is an opportunity for people of faith to remember God's  commitment to justice and to reflect on how we can help ensure that  workers are treated with dignity in the workplace. The Labor in the Pulpits program provides worship and study resources for congregations'  worship services on Labor Day weekend.
