Our mission is to defend & advance the rights & opportunities of low-income immigrants and their family members.

Workers' Rights


ALL WORKERS, NO MATTER WHERE THEY WERE BORN, should be able to work free from fear that they will be underpaid or placed in a dangerous environment. Sadly, this isn’t the case for many low-income immigrant workers in this country. Through a variety of tactics, including know-your-rights trainings, policy analysis, and raids response, NILC defends the fundamental rights of all those working in the U.S.
