Instituto Laboral de la Raza is a nonprofit legal advocacy and workers’ resource center founded (1982) by community Labor activists. It serves the critical needs of all low income working families in California. The Instituto has its office in the Mission District of San Francisco. Most of its clients are unorganized working poor immigrants from Mexico, Central America, South America, and Southeast Asia.

The Mission of the Instituto Laboral de la Raza is to enable low income workers to emerge from cycles of poverty that endanger themselves and the families they support. It provides labor rights education and legal advocacy that secure unpaid wages and other earned benefits previously denied to them. The Instituto works in collaboration with Labor, the State of California and neighborhood organizations to effectively advocate for the economic, health and social welfare of disadvantaged and disparaged families.
