Labor Education and Advocacy

The Labor and Worklife Program at Harvard University

The Labor and Worklife Program (LWP) is Harvard University’s forum for research and teaching on the world of work and its implications for society. Located at the Harvard Law School, the LWP brings together scholars and policy experts from a variety of disciplines to analyze critical labor issues in the law, economy, and society. The LWP also provides unique education for labor leaders throughout the world via the oldest executive training program at Harvard University, the Harvard Trade Union Program, founded in 1942.

Good Jobs First

Good Jobs First frequently testifies before state legislatures, conducts workshops and training, and appears in the press. Unions, community organizations, religious groups, living wage campaigns, public officials,  environmentalists, tax and budget advocates, and economic development practitioners consult with GJF when companies seek development subsidies, restructure, close plants, or become involved in other issues of public concern. GJF tracks corporate accountability innovations in all states to develop "best practices" that can then be employed elsewhere.

George Meany Center for Labor Studies

The National Labor College (NLC) began with the vision of George Meany that labor have its own college - a national center that would provide continuous labor education for all union activists. At NLC you can take classes that enable you to be an integral part of building your union; those same union-building classes can start you on the path to finishing the bachelor’s degree.

The Economic Policy Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank that seeks to broaden the public debate about strategies to achieve a prosperous and fair economy.
