Education and Legal Action for a Better America
The Allied Educational Foundation is a national U.S. organization committed to providing working Americans with the resources to become educated and empowered citizens who can participate in the direction of change. Our philosophy is built on the work of our founder, George Barasch, who worked tirelessly for the American worker as a union leader for decades organizing and protecting the rights of over 11,000 employees at over 250 businesses beginning in 1937. In 1964, he expanded and formalized his ideas into the Allied Educational Foundation as an instrument to continue his work on a national level.
