The CELA Legislative Committee monitors state and federal legislation affecting employees and the attorneys who represent them.

CELA members testify in the California Assembly and Senate committees on proposed legislation. We also work in coalition with labor, legal and civil rights organizations to improve the quality of life for working women and men.

If you would like to become a member of CELA’s Legislative Committee contact our Legislative Counsel & Policy Director, Mariko Yoshihara at mariko@cela.org.
