EJC’s Good Jobs Campaigns

The EJC strives to improve workplace justice in the DC metropolitan area through advocating for policy changes based on the employment problems we see workers confront in our weekly Workers’ Rights Clinic. While providing legal advice and representation helps address problems one individual at a time, the EJC also identifies issues for systemic reform. The EJC leads and supports workers’ rights campaigns for systemic reform through organizing impacted workers and leveraging our policy expertise. We have successfully led coalitions that helped to pass D.C.‘s Earned 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.

Current Campaigns

Want to support workers’ rights in the DC metropolitan area?

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 advocacy@dcejc.org.
