About Us

Who We Are


Founded in 2010, New England United 4 Justice (NEU4J) is an organization committed to promoting social, economic and racial justice through a strong grassroots organizing approach and direct leadership in low-income neighborhoods. We provide an avenue that engages and empowers families to speak up and improve the City of Boston around worker justice, neighborhood reform and voter empowerment issues.

We believe in a strong bottom-up approach to our work that creates a long-term foundation for building and developing leaders in low-income communities and communities of color. As a membership-based organization, we believe in the power of building coalitions as a part of our broader approach to building community.
