Environmentalists for Full Employment (Washington, D.C.)

Hide Profile

In 1975, Environmentalists for Full Employment (EFFE) was formed in response to the omission of environmentalists from the Full Employment Action Council, which was composed of labor leaders and community action organizers. The primary concern of the EFFE was to demonstrate that environmentalists and organized labor share common concerns and need to work together to address these issues. EFFE worked under the idea that environmentally friendly initiatives within companies would create more jobs for the unemployed. EFFE ceased operations in 1984 due to a lack of commitment from labor leaders to pursue what they perceived to be nontraditional workplace issues.
