Rising to the Moment | Awards Reception

Thank you for joining NELP on November 29, 2017 in Washington D.C. to celebrate the achievements of an exemplary group of workers and advocates who have fought tirelessly for workers’ interests in the face of unprecedented challenges—and produced some remarkable victories along the way.

Thank you for making NELP’s 2017 Rising to the Moment awards reception a success. During these challenging times, coming together to honor our community’s work to advance workers’ rights is restorative and encouraging. We hope you left feeling as inspired as we did.

we were pleased to honor:

  • Minneapolis $15 Minimum Wage Campaign,

  • Workers Defense Project | Proyecto Defensa Laboral,

  • Teresa Tritch, former Member of the NYT Editorial Board, NELP’s 2017 Beth Shulman Fellow
