The founder of the Freelancers Union in the United States, Sara Horowitz, has been shortlisted for TIME magazine’s TIME 100 list.
A former lawyer, Sara founded the Freelancers Union in 2003. In that time, she has built a movement of more than 200,000 independent workers, and been instrumental in sparking an international conversation about freelancers and the future of work.
Sara believes that the shift from a workforce of employees to independent contractors is “the industrial revolution of our era,” and she is deeply committed to raising the profile of freelancers in our economy, and to helping more people build meaningful, independent, connected working lives.
