Privacy Policy

WorkingFamilies.org is a joint project of the Working Families Organization and the Working Families Partry. We works hard to protect your privacy. We never share or sell your email address or any other information with outside organizations without your knowledge.

Petitions and Surveys
For petitions and surveys you’ve signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information – for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, and state available to the press and public online.

Sending Emails via WorkingFamilies.org
In certain cases, we enable you to send individual e-mails to the President, legislators, and other targets as well as Letters-to-the-Editor to various news publications, through our website. These messages are sent in your name, with your e-mail address as the return address and your full name and contact information is provided as part of the submission. These messages will only be sent out under your name as you approve them on an individual basis using our email tool. You are solely responsible for the specific message(s) you send using our email tool.

Coalitions
We may occasionally launch petitions or other campaigns in collaboration with allied organizations, who will be clearly disclosed on the page. If you sign on to join such a campaign, you may also receive updates from those allies. We may share limited contact information with coalition partners for one-time use to advance our campaigns, for example, communicating with you about logistics for an event you’ve signed up to participate in.

Working Families Organization and Working Families Party
The Working Families Organization and the Working Families Party are separate organizations, but both share the same values. As such, when you provide your information to the Working Families Party, we share it with the Working Families Organization, except for credit card information.

Phone Campaigns
From time to time, Working Families staff members, volunteers, and vendors may contact you by telephone about urgent campaigns. If you would like to be removed permanently from our phone list, please email reply@workingfamilies.org. Please allow 8-10 business days for your information to be removed.
