About Let Justice Roll

With over 100 member organizations, the nonpartisan Let Justice Roll Living Wage Campaign is the leading faith, community, labor, business coalition committed to raising the minimum wage to a living wage at the state and federal level.

Let Justice Roll educates the public about the link between poverty and wages, and informs people of the severity of conditions facing low-wage working people and what must be done to bring about constructive change. Since 2005, Let Justice Roll has played a lead role in raising the minimum wage in 18 states and breaking the decade-long stalemate in raising the federal minimum wage above $5.15. Let Justice Roll is leading new campaigns to raise the minimum wage and enact living wage at the local, state and federal level. The minimum wage is where society draws the line: This low and no lower. Our bottom line is this:

A job should keep you out of poverty, not keep you in it.

We are eager to involve additional organizations in the Campaign. Please contact Steve Copley scopley [at] letjusticeroll [dot] org for further information. You can also sign up here.

Let Justice Roll takes its name from this challenge by the prophet Amos: "Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an overflowing stream."
