CLUE LA, founded in 1996, is one of the oldest interfaith worker justice organizations in the country. CLUE LA's mission is to bring together clergy and lay leaders of all faiths to join low-wage workers in their struggles for justice.

Its many accomplishments began with key support for the successful Los Angeles's 1997 Living Wage campaign.

CLUE LA took a leadership role in the battle to keep Wal-Mart out of Inglewood; played a central role in the passage of statewide legislation increasing funding for staffing for nursing homes; provided strategic support for striking grocery workers that brought the owner of Safeway back to the bargaining table; created dramatic actions in support of hotel workers in Santa Monica and Los Angeles that were crucial to victory; and played an important role in the public policy and corporate campaigns of healthcare workers and janitors.

CLUE LA has over 600 religious leaders and 1200 lay people active in its work, including a very broad range of ethnic and denominational constituencies, including Christian Evangelicals, Muslim leaders and mosques, all of the Jewish denominations, historic African-American churches, Hispanic Pentecostals, and Korean congregations. http://cluela.org/
