The National Lawyers Guild Labor and Employment Committee

The National Lawyers Guild is composed of activist lawyers, law professors, law students, legal workers and jailhouse lawyers, all of whom are dedicated to the end that human rights are more sacred than property interests. The Guild was founded in the 1930s as a progressive, multi-racial alternative to the American Bar Association, which then excluded people of color from membership.
