EJC’s Good Jobs Campaigns
Seeking social justice through policy change, community organizing, and other tools, the EJC strives to improve situations for workers in and around Washington, DC. While providing legal advice and representation helps address problems one individual at a time, the EJC also identifies issues for systemic reform. We have been leaders in advocacy coalitions that helped to pass D.C.‘s Paid Sick and Safe Leave Law, Living Wage Act, and expanded unemployment benefits. Today, we are advocating for a “Good Jobs” agenda to support workers rights and workplace justice.
- Fight against wage theft by employers who try to rip-off their low-wage workers
- Ban employment discrimination based job applicants’ prior arrests or convictions
- Improve disability compensation for DC workers who are injured on the job

Have other ideas of what other campaigns you’d like to see happen?
EJC, WAGE, and IWA are always looking for more activists and want to hear your ideas and how you can help make them successful. Please let us know your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Want to volunteer for EJC’s advocacy campaigns?
We always need volunteers to help promote EJC’s legislative and enforcement campaigns designed to improve DC’s laws for workers and increase enforcement of existing workplace fairness laws. We need people who can help produce campaign materials, organize workers and other volunteers to take action, testify before the D.C. Council, write letters to the editor, consult on legislative drafting, host house parties or phone banks, and participate in countless other grassroots advocacy techniques. If you are interested, please call (202) 828-9675 × 119 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
