2022 Mid-Year Update: Our Progress Toward Advancing Racial and Economic Justice

In January, the National Employment Law Project (NELP) released our 2022 Policy and Advocacy Agenda describing our fight for a good-jobs economy. This mid-year update highlights accomplishments over the last six months and elevates areas of focus for the second half of 2022.

NELP is a leading advocacy organization with the mission to build a just and inclusive economy where all workers have expansive rights and thrive in good jobs. With our partners, NELP advances its mission through transformative legal and policy solutions, research, capacity-building, and strategic communications at the local, state, and federal levels. Our vision of a good-jobs economy means we have economic security over a lifetime. It means we can count on just working conditions, benefits, and wages—where equity is baked into policies and employers are accountable. A good-jobs economy is built on worker power, with which we collectively shape the conditions of the job to ensure our communities rise together. Together, we are advancing transformative solutions to achieve racial and economic justice and support Black and immigrant workers in building power.
