Celebrating ILRF's 30th Anniversary
ILRF’s founders came together in 1986 to put human rights conditionality on U.S. trade policy. Ever since, we have advocated, tested and frequently won policy reforms to protect workers’ rights. Yet those government and industry reforms are only effective when workers can speak out and demand their rights.
Please join us this year to honor the bravery and dedication of international leading worker rights advocates as we celebrate ILRF’s 30th Anniversary.
Can't join us on May 12th in Washington, DC?
All donations support the International Labor Rights Forum.
