The Movement for Economic Justice was formed by George Wiley in 1972 after he stepped down from the National Welfare Rights Organization. Wiley was firmly dedicated to fighting for welfare rights for low income families, and although he was CEO of the NWRO, he believed a broader movement that would promote progressive taxation and redistribution would benefit all Americans dealing with high property taxes. Following Wiley's untimely death in August of 1973, the MEJ was dissolved.
