Adrianne Shropshire "is the Executive Director of New York Jobs with Justice (NY JWJ), a community, labor and faith-based coalition fighting for health care reform, accountable economic development and workers’ rights. NY JWJ recently won passage of the New York City Health Care Security Act, guaranteeing health coverage for thousands of grocery workers, and is actively engaged in the campaign to expand that model at the state level. Jobs with Justice’s priority programs include the development of neighborhood-based electoral mobilization networks in communities of color focused on significantly increasing voter turnout, and Faith in Action, a faith-based organizing project aimed at increasing the role and impact of faith communities in the social justice movement.

"Prior to her work at NY JWJ, Ms. Shropshire worked for 10 years at AGENDA (Action for Grassroots Empowerment and Neighborhood Development Alternatives), a multi-issue, grassroots community organization based in South Los Angeles. She has done direct grassroots organizing around workforce development issues, welfare reform, subsidy and development accountability, police accountability and developing community-driven comprehensive job creation strategies. Ms. Shropshire graduated from the University of Southern California where she began her organizing experience as a student organizer." [1]
