Our governments — federal, state, and city — spend a combined $2 trillion per year purchasing the goods and services that keep our cities running and neighborhoods connected. At the national level, Jobs to Move America engages in research and policy advocacy to ensure these public dollars do the most public good. We do this by helping agencies and policymakers combine public investments in our infrastructure with the creation of worker-friendly, family-supporting jobs.

Right now, we’re organizing a powerful coalition of over 160 public officials, community groups, unions, advocates, and academics to call on the Biden administration overturn the ban on local hire.
