About Us

The Long Beach Coalition for Good Jobs and a Healthy Community includes residents, workers, students and academics as well as labor, faith and community-based organizations. We believe that workers’ rights are human rights and that people should have a say in the political decisions that affect their lives.


Our mission is to address the growing inequality and poverty in Long Beach by promoting living wages, responsible development, affordable housing and healthy communities. The Coalition engages in grassroots leadership development, political advocacy, civic participation, and public education to make a more livable Long Beach for everyone.
