Innovating from the Ground Up: State and Local Grants Program Summary Report, 2020-21


In 2020-21, Clean Slate for Worker Power supported nine organizations across the country pursuing innovative worker organizing models, policy proposals, and strategies at the state and local levels. From implementing digital organizing strategies to piloting worker boards to launching multi-coalition campaigns, our grantees have shown creativity and resilience in striving for novel approaches to allowing workers to build countervailing power. Projects from this cohort of grantees impacted policy development across a range of issue areas, including just cause dismissal, collective bargaining rights for workers excluded from the NLRA, and digital organizing strategies.

In this report, we share findings, outcomes, and lessons learned from our grantees’ efforts to empower and expand protections for workers. Learn more about our grantees on our Grants page.
