WHAT THEY DO: Just Economics’ mission is to educate, advocate and organize for a just and sustainable local economy that works for all in Western North Carolina.
Just Economics has been doing great work in our community for years that has personally affected my life for the better. I now work for two living-wage-certified businesses. There is better and more frequent bus service due to their advocacy, and I have learned ways to lift my voice for change after taking their VOICES training. Just Economics brings together all kinds of people, from business owners to workers, to discuss and help build a better economy for all. I am thankful for all the amazing work they do for our community.—Samantha Simpson
