The Living Wage Coalition of Transylvania County is a coalition working as a part of Just Economics to promote living wages in Brevard and the surrounding areas.

The LWCTC meets the 2nd Thursday of every month at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brevard from 10am -noon.

The LWCTC promotes living wages and a just economy by advocating for responsible public policy, participating in the voluntary living wage employer certification program, and by educating the community about issues of economic justice through activities like the Western North Carolina Poverty Simulation.  We also work to involve leaders from low-income communities through the Voices for Economic Justice program.
