At the Partnership for Working Families, we believe all people have a right to the things we need to live full and healthy lives: clean water, excellent schools, accessible public transit, healthy homes, and more. In cities across the country, we are fighting for public goods that will increase community wealth, health and justice for communities of color and all of us. By building power locally, we can strengthen our cities and build a just future.

The Building Blocks to Living Full and Healthy Lives
Every step along the way is an opportunity to create good jobs, protect the planet and build thriving communities.
We start our days using clean water from our regional public water system.
1: Clean Water
We drop our kids off at excellent public schools where teachers’ and parents’ voices are heard and they have the resources they need to prepare our children for their future.
2: Thriving Public Schools
We ride the public, clean energy-fueled bus or train to jobs that we love and where we earn enough to provide for our families, thanks to the union contract we won by joining together with our coworkers.
3: Transportation that Connects Us
We take our lunch in a beautiful public park. And after school our kids go with their child care provider to the public library to check out a book or use state of the art technology.
4: Shared Community Spaces
After dinner, we jump online--using a computer powered by our public clean energy utility--to learn about a proposed project in the neighborhood and get information about the next community meeting.
5: Local Clean Energy
And because our home is safe and affordable, when we turn in at night we are not worrying about bills, but thinking about the possibilities of the future for our family.
6: Affordable & Healthy Homes
