The Workers Defense League (WDL), founded in 1936, is a nonprofit workers' rights organization that specializes in helping people who have been denied unemployment insurance. We also conduct trainings for unions and other organizations about unemployment insurance rules (including recent significant changes in the law) and the hearing process.

WDL can be reached by calling (212) 627-1931.

The WDL 87th Anniversary Fundraising Event will take place online Thursday, June 8, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.
