Our Impact

As we celebrate 52 years, the National Employment Law Project’s (NELP) is proud to share our 2020-2021 impact report, Cultivating Transformation. We are fighting for workers’ rights today and laying the foundation for a just and inclusive economic future.

The state of workers’ rights is at an inflection point that has been a long time coming. Ninety percent of jobs in the United States are racially segregated and often underpaid and less safe due to decades of racist policies, systems, and discourse developed by anti-worker policymakers and corporations. NELP’s work is to cultivate narrative, policy, and systems-transformation that holds every person, our planet, and future, as valuable and worthy of flourishing.

Together we can create a good-jobs economy where the needs of women, Black people, immigrants, and workers with records and their families are included – ensuring we all thrive.

We thank you for your generosity and commitment to NELP’s mission.
