2024 Policy & Advocacy Agenda: Bold Solutions to Advance Racial and Economic Justice

Founded in 1969, the National Employment Law Project (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. Our 2024 Policy and Advocacy Agenda describes how we continue to advance transformative solutions to achieve racial and economic justice and support Black and immigrant workers in building power.

NELP advances its mission with its partners through transformative legal and policy solutions, research, capacity-building, and strategic communications at the local, state, and federal levels. In the year ahead, we will come together in deep partnership with allies to fight for the issues paramount to working people: workers’ rights, safe workplace conditions, just wages and benefits, and equitable employment opportunities.

At a time when workers are uniting around their power to manifest the principles of democracy, equity, and solidarity, we see a path to creating economic security over a lifetime—a good-jobs economy. 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. Leveraging our multiple roles as thought leader, connector, and policy expert, in 2024, we will:

  1. Raise the Floor for Wages, Benefits, and Job Conditions
  2. Build Worker Power and Push Back Corporate Influence
  3. Bolster Enforcement of Worker Rights
  4. Advance an Inclusive Economy
