Freelancers organizing
for change, unity, and strength

Navigating the new economy is going to require communication, cooperation, and solidarity. Join us to learn how labor organizing as a freelance, 1099, or gig worker can help us build a stronger economy together.

together we are strong

Pittsburgh is a town built on industry, with a rich history of successful businesses and worker power. We come together as FOCUS, Freelancers Organizing for Change, Unity, and Strength, to add our voices to the conversation of what work looks like in the present day. As freelancers, we’re independent, driven, and creative entrepreneurs, adding value to every project we work on.

We’re part of a new economy, moving away from traditional employer-employee relationships. With FOCUS, we come together to make sure that the new economy works just as well for us as it does for tech capital.

Workers create wealth; organizing workers keep our share.

Organize and Grow

"When I started freelancing at WH Digital I was brought on mainly for my business knowledge, but they allowed me to grow into social media management, graphic design, web development, and more. They push you towards opportunity and give you the tools and support to succeed"

- Karisa

FOster your talents

“The work we do is challenging but it does give you the ability to foster your talents and learn new technologies. The schedule has been tremendous as well, being able to work during the evening and watch my kids during the day while their mom studies for her masters!”
