The International Labor Rights Forum (ILRF) is a human rights advocacy organization dedicated to achieving dignity and justice for workers worldwide.
Founded in 1986 and based in Washington D.C. ILRF works with trade unions and communitybased labor rights advocates to expose violations of workers’ rights, including child and forced labor, discrimination, and violations of workers’ rights to organize and bargain collectively.
Our field research helps to build and promote workerdriven organizations and solutions. We develop, propose, test, and assess government and corporate policies to ensure that global trade, procurement, and development practices support workers’ rights. Through raising public awareness about working conditions in global low-wage industries — especially in the garment and agriculture industries — we educate consumers to push companies and governments for change.
