Clean Slate for Worker Power

Building a Just Economy and Democracy


Clean Slate for Worker Power is a project of Harvard Law School’s Labor and Worklife Program. It was founded by Professor Benjamin Sachs, Kestnbaum Professor of Labor and Industry at Harvard Law School, and Sharon Block when she served as the Executive Director of the Labor and Worklife Program. The Clean Slate for Worker Power participants sought innovation, boldness and comity to answer to the project’s animating question: what would labor law look like if, starting from a clean slate, it was designed to empower working people to build a truly equitable American democracy and a genuinely equitable American economy.
