About the Employment Discrimination Project

The Employment Discrimination Project ("EDP") challenges all forms of racial, national origin, and sexual discrimination in the workplace, both private and governmental, including discrimination by federal, state and local agencies. The Project is acclaimed for litigating complex and often protracted class action lawsuits on behalf of women and minorities. With the crucial assistance of law firms that co-counsel cases with the Lawyers' Committee, the Project dismantles systemic barriers faced by women and minorities in hiring and promotions. The Project works with government officials and Congress to ensure strong government enforcement of fair employment laws. Technical assistance is provided to a growing network of 6,100 plaintiffs' attorneys who are learning the nuances of fair employment litigation.
