On September 24, 1965, as part of his vision to seek “not just equality as a right and a theory but equality as a fact and equality as a result,” President Lyndon Johnson issued an executive order to protect workers from discrimination in federal contracting. We asked you to help us protect that promise of equality by telling the Trump administration to withdraw a proposed rule that could significantly undermine the rights of workers across the country, and you delivered.
The U.S. Department of Labor has received more than 92,000 comments from people like you who stood up for fairness and equality in the workplace. We want to thank you for showing this administration what our values are and how strong we are when we come together to fight injustice.
We know this isn't the end of the line for our fight for workers' rights, but this was a crucial step toward ensuring the government is accountable to its people. Your voice made a difference, and we thank you.
