Just Economics aims to have a membership that reflects the diversity of our community, with an intentional focus on leadership from low-wage workers and others most affected by the issues we work on. Voices for Economic Justice is an 8-week workshop series that incorporates popular economics education and community organizing skill-building, with the aim to build leadership among low-wage workers and low-income persons.

The primary objectives of Voices for Economic Justice are:
Voices participants deepen their understanding of current economic conditions and develop community organizing skills through popular education workshops led by experienced facilitators.
Voices builds community support by bringing low-wage workers from diverse backgrounds together around a shared experience. The Voices program also strengthens the relationship between low-wage workers and Just Economics through membership and creating avenues for future long-term involvement.
Voices participants take the lead in the movement for social and economic justice by engaging in Just Economics work and mobilizing their voices in community education and organizing activities.
