At the Graduate Theological Union, Seminarians for Worker Justice (SWJ) educate, organize, and mobilize students to get involved in campaigns to improve the conditions of low-wage workers in the Bay Area. Working across the various GTU schools, SWJ stands in solidarity with workers - both on and off campus.
uses the leadership of seminarians to support worker organizing and
advocate for policies lifting low-income
families out of poverty. Building upon the shared commitment between
faith communities and the
labor movement to respect human dignity and the sanctity of work,
seminarians involved in SWJ strive to live their faith and catalyze
their communities to action. To read about some of SWJ's work and accomplishments in the past several years, click here.
