About us

Freelancers Union believes all workers should have the freedom to build meaningful, connected, and independent lives – backed by a system of mutual and public support.

Nearly one in three working Americans is an independent worker. That's 53 million people – and growing. We're lawyers and nannies. We're graphic designers and temps. We're the future of the economy. Freelancers Union serves the needs of this growing independent sector. We're bringing freelancers together to build smarter solutions to health care, retirement, wage security, and other broken systems. We call it New Mutualism. You can call it the future.

Who we are

Founded by Sara Horowitz, we are a group of practical revolutionaries who look for innovative ways to bring together and support the country's 53 million independent workers.

Our work

We're helping the diverse self-employed community build a powerful voice – in politics and in markets. We connect freelancers to group-rate benefits, resources, community, and political action to improve their lives – and their bottom lines.
