Economic inequality

Widening economic inequality is harmful to people everywhere—today, economic factors are responsible for more deaths than armed conflict in the U.S. and around the world. For lasting peace, every person needs access to education, adequate food and shelter, and safe, sustainable livelihoods. 

To improve living and working conditions, AFSC organizes grassroots workers’ rights initiatives, community-based economic development, and anti-homelessness efforts. AFSC also advocates at every level for polices that reduce economic inequality.
