The New American Jobs Fund (“Jobs Fund”) will fight for America’s middle class by working to elect forward-thinking leaders. With the right leadership in Congress, we can build a just and equitable clean technology economy, creating more, better jobs while also protecting our environment. The Jobs Fund is the continuation of years of cooperation between the United Steelworkers (USW Works) and LCV Victory Fund. It is focused on large-scale voter persuasion and mobilization in critical federal races across the country – because America’s working families deserve leadership in Washington that has their backs.
“We don’t have to choose between good jobs and clean air and water, and that’s why conservationists and labor are coming together once again to elect candidates who share those values.”
LCV Victory Fund President Gene Karpinski
“Both our organizations have long histories of mobilizing our members. Our activists don’t just show up at the polls on Election Day; they participate in every step of the democratic process. With our combined strength and our focus on direct voter contact, we will ensure that our elected leaders represent working families rather than the corporate interests that seek to divide us.”
United Steelworkers International President Tom Conway
