Miguel Contreras Foundation

Over a decade ago, Los Angeles community, business, and labor leaders united to honor the legacy of Miguel Contreras and continue his life’s work to create a better Los Angeles for marginalized workers. Today, the Miguel Contreras Foundation serves as one of our nonprofit partners in L.A. Union and carries out programming to serve underserved workers outside the traditional focus of organized labor.

MCF connects marginalized workers in underserved communities with opportunities and resources.


MCF’s mission is to empower working Angelenos – especially women, immigrants, and communities of color – by advancing greater equity through access to good quality jobs and livable communities.

Their work is guided and informed by our shared belief and commitment in the inclusivity of workers to share in the prosperity earned from their hard work, expect fair and safe workplaces, and raise their voices about the public decisions that affect their lives.
