Jobs to Move America
Get Updates Donate

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.

To achieve this vision, we partner with JMA’s regional teams and at the national level with transportation, labor, civil rights, environmental, and policy allies.
