The New Orleans Workers’ Center for Racial Justice legal department
provides legal support to our grassroots organizing projects and our
members to force employers and federal, state, and local agencies to
comply with existing laws, to build worker power, and to protect
workers’ rights to organize. Our current work includes federal impact
litigation and law reform cases, strategic immigration and detention
work, administrative advocacy, policy analysis and advocacy reports,
and campaign research and support. Practice areas include workers’
rights, housing, civil rights, and immigration.
