We fight to amplify the
voices of 60 million
independent workers

in the U.S.

We know freelancers are special, and we won’t rest until everyone else does, too. Since its founding in 1995, Freelancers Union has fought for and won protections for independent workers. In partnership with our 501(c)3, Working Today, we help build safeguards, benefits, a voice, and solidarity for the changing workforce, to make freelancing fair.
