UPFH Justice at Work Logo

Our firm exists to help advance the interests of working people and to combat discrimination in all its forms. In these days of pain and even crisis, we remain committed to the fight to eradicate systemic racism and racial injustice in all its forms, including anti-Black racism.

While we mourn the painful loss of George Floyd and other victims of racialized violence, we are heartened by and we stand in solidarity with the many millions working to build change.
