Our Mission

The mission of the Instituto Laboral de la Raza is to provide labor rights education and legal advocacy for all low income workers, to obtain unpaid wages and other denied benefits vital to the support of workers and their families, and to work in collaboration with other neighborhood organizations to effectively manage all other critical needs for the economic, health and social welfare of disadvantaged, disparaged families.

The Goal of the Instituto Laboral de la Raza is to attack the root causes of systemic poverty of people from all social and ethnic backgrounds through programs that stabilize them in their communities and to build leadership so that they may flourish and contribute in harmony to the economic, social and cultural enrichment of their communities.

Instituto Laboral de la Raza delivers a full scope of labor education and legal advocacy services all over the Bay Area.

Legal Services for the Working Poor

Founded in 1982, Instituto Laboral de la Raza is a 501(c)3 non-profit resource center that provides labor rights education and advocacy to serve the needs of low income workers and their families. We deliver services, peer counseling, financial education and access to a network of services, all at no charge, 7 days a week. The thousands of workers we serve annually are from Mexico, Central America, Southeast Asia and the United States, and we serve many indigenous (native) peoples throughout the Americas as well.
