Today we reflect on the life and lasting legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A fighter for racial, economic and social justice, Dr. King lived his life in pursuit of a more just world. He believed organized labor was a key driver of economic and racial equity and worked throughout his life – until the very end – to bridge the labor and civil rights movements together.
We are proud to honor, celebrate and continue to pursue Dr. King’s vision today and every day.

Funding for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has stayed flat since 2014 — an effective decrease of 25 percent when accounting for inflation. The agency's $94 million budgetary shortfall is severely impacting the NLRB's ability to conduct its important work to protect workers' rights.
At a time when workers are organizing in record numbers, ensuring the NLRB has the funding to meet the moment is critical. The NLRB is the bedrock of our labor relations system. No other agency in the U.S. government is as important when it comes to protecting and expanding workers' rights.
Can you take a moment to tell your senators to FULLY FUND the NLRB?
