Organizing for Justice and Serving the Unemployed

A snapshot of Philadelphia Unemployment Project history.

Since 1975, the Philadelphia Unemployment Project has organized the poor and unemployed to fight for economic justice, bringing diverse groups together to bring about major changes that benefit millions of unemployed and impoverished. PUP has helped the unemployed link with coalition partners

in the labor, religious, community civil rights and women’s movements to increase our power. Our victories prove that, once organized, working people and the unemployed can be a powerful voice in the city, state, and nation.
