Launched in the summer of 2019, the Workers' Rights Institute focuses on innovative legal and policy initiatives to support workers' rights and empowering the nation's most vulnerable workers to access existing labor protections.
The Workers’ Rights Institute organizes legal and policy initiatives that raise standards while also building workers’ collective power in the workplace and in their communities. Included is the development of proactive and creative vehicles for outreach, education and effective utilization of established and other resources to empower and protect the traditionally underserved and diverse population of low-income workers.
The Workers’ Rights Institute has put together resources for workers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about our resources.
