Support Legal Aid at Work
We help people understand and assert their workplace rights, and we advocate for employment laws and systems that help those most in need.
Our success depends on the generosity of law firms, corporations, foundations, governmental donors, and individuals. We welcome donations large and small to our annual fund, annual event, and special campaigns. And we invite you to designate Legal Aid at Work as a cy pres recipient.
