Mission Statement

In 1973 the United Construction Workers Association, the Alaska Cannery Workers Association, and the United Farmer Workers of Washington State established LELO as a racial and economic justice workers' rights 501c3 nonprofit organization. As an organization led by ordinary workers, we develop the leadership of those most marginalized in our society: people of color, working class women, recent immigrants and LGBTQ (lesbian/ gay/bisexual/ transgender/ queer) workers. Our social change strategy is local organizing, with emphasis on political education and solidarity networks with workers across all borders.

LELO Relicensing Program

LELO experience with re-licensing goes deep as it started 14 years ago as a community outrage to the increased arrests in low-income communities because of unpaid traffic infractions.
