Dear Friends, Allies, and Alumni:
KI has been privileged to promote worker rights and economic justice since 2009.
We have introduced a new generation of students to the issues of labor and community organizing; served as a resource and advocate for workers on our campus; defended worker rights and immigrant rights in the D.C. area; incubated exciting projects to empower workers such as Coworker.org; convened workers, activists, and policymakers to address working-class concerns; and advanced innovative solutions for the labor movement such as WILL Empower and Bargaining for the Common Good.

Georgetown University’s Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor develops creative strategies and innovative public policy to improve workers’ lives in a changing economy. The Initiative draws on Georgetown’s distinctive identity—its commitment to intellectual excellence, grounding in the Catholic and Jesuit traditions, history of inter-religious cooperation, global reach, and prominence as an arena of policy debate in the nation’s capital—to advance prosperity, broadly-shared economic justice, and respect for the dignity of labor.
