ADVOCACY HOME

Welcome to NELA's Grassroots Advocacy Center!

The National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA) actively works with the White House, Congress, and federal agencies to advance equality and justice in the American workplace.

We are most effective in raising our voices for change when NELA members and NELA Affiliate members—as local community leaders, lawyers, and constituents—are an integral part of our lobbying efforts.

NELA welcomes our coalition partners and anyone who is interested in employee rights advocacy to join us. Together, we can ensure that all of America’s workers are treated fairly and with dignity in the workplace. We invite you to use our Grassroots Advocacy Center to stay informed and get involved!
