TUSA is working on issues of justice and fairness on four issues: jobs, safety, youth, and education.
Toledo’s unemployment rate is at 7.1% which is higher than the national average. Due to the efforts of TUSA in 2007 the First Source Agreement was passed which requires companies who receive tax abatements from the city of Toledo to exclusively interview local residents for new positions for a specific period of time before opening their search to residents outside Toledo.
As a direct result of our numbers and power, TUSA won a struggle to get stricter code enforcement for houses with serious structural code violations.
Since TUSA’s inception in the early 90’s our congregations have been working to improve education
