Do you believe working people deserve to win real change? Come work with us!
The Working Families Party (WFP) is the progressive party for the multiracial working class, fighting for a nation that works for the many, not the few.
We believe that no matter our race, age or gender, most of us want the same things. We want to earn enough to thrive, not just survive, and leave a better future. We want healthy food and clean water, safe neighborhoods and a safe world. We want to be free.
To win real change, we know our staff MUST reflect the communities we fight for. To that end our job application asks detailed demographic questions to learn more about you and your lived experience. Our staff includes people from many different backgrounds (working class, middle/upper class) and different identities (ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation) that are reflective of working people. We are proud that the WFP staff also reflects the various levels of ability (visible or nonvisible disabilities) and neurodiversity of our members.
