UFE is excited to announce the release of our "Color of Wealth 2021" infographic!
We will be releasing a series of three new infographics this year related to the racial wealth divide. This project topic was chosen to commemorate the 15th anniversary of "The Color of Wealth," a book written in collaboration with UFE in 2006.
We’re excited to be supporting a new campaign for a global 4 day work week!
UFE staff have been operating on a 4-day work week for over a year now. Our director, Jeannette Huezo, made instituting the new policy a top priority. She had a few thoughts to share; click through to the full post to read.
According to a new report from ProPublica, the wealthiest US taxpayers pay an true tax rate that is far below that of a normal worker.
Perhaps most concerning is that the ways the wealthy avoid paying taxes are legal under current rules. This is another example of our economy working in favor of those at the very top, not everyday people. We need to tax income from wealth like income from work is. Imagine what the additional revenue from taxing wealth could do in the communities that made that wealth possible.
Despite the challenges of the pandemic, we have been busier than ever working with organizers and activists to help build and sustain movements for economic, racial, and gender justice. Now is the time to come together - while remaining physically distant - to build even more powerful movements for justice and fix the broken systems harming our communities.
UFE is not fighting to get back to business as usual; together, we're redefining usual. We are demanding a world capable of providing real health and safety for all, and daring to imagine bold visions of what this world can look like. Learn more about our work below!
In January, UFE supported a series of popular education facilitations to build a more equitable city of Everett with Everett's first Justice Summit, led by Allie Rojas, a former UFE training participant and recent collaborator. Guided by the idea “you can’t break a stick in a bundle,” organizers and community members from across backgrounds joined together to discuss shared values and build a framework for “not only coming together, but working together” to build a more just and equitable community and city.
Judy Pigott, author and UFE donor, recently wrote a new article on philanthropy, “What Might Foundations Do?” Take a few minutes to read this thought-provoking piece on how we can all become “fellow travelers, not conquerors” on the road to a more just society!
Thank you for being a part of the UFE community. You make our work possible! We want to share with you our 2020 impact report, available now on our website in Spanish and English. This year, the report comes in the form of a beautifully illustrated map.

We at United for a Fair Economy are devastated by the tragedy that occurred in Atlanta, GA, on March 16th. We must address root causes of hate that has left eight dead, including six women of Asian decent. They include white supremacy, misogyny, sexualized racism, and sexual violence against Asian and Asian American women.
