About the Poor and Working Class Caucus at JFREJ

The PWC Caucus within JFREJ is a political home-base and community for raised and/or currently poor/working class members, working in solidarity to bring our voices, our experiences, and exert our political power, to influence strategic decisions of JFREJ organizing, as well as electoral endorsements, through a class lens. We are a community for JFREJ members who live with, or have lived with, sustained financial hardship, experiences of poverty, or a lack of a safety net.

The Caucus is an affinity space whose members supports each other through relationships, mutual aid efforts, and political education. This is a space for JFREJ members to deepen their class analysis, cultivate our leadership and build new models of value within JFREJ and the broader community that are not economically based.
