Statement in Support of Karla Gilbride and Kalpana Kotagal

“We’re beyond proud of our former Access to Justice Co-Director Karla Gilbride and former Board Member Kalpana Kotagal for being sworn in as the General Counsel and Commissioner, respectively, of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

For more than a decade, both Karla and Kalpana’s dedication to fighting on behalf of workers and consumers have been unparalleled, where they have consistently championed equal opportunity in the workplace and fought for the legal protections and civil rights of workers everywhere.

From holding companies accountable for wage theft to fighting injustices and workplace discrimination, both Karla and Kalpana have served as tireless advocates for those who have been harmed by their employers, ensuring every person has access to our justice system no matter who they are or where they live.

We’re confident they will continue this important work as leaders at the EEOC. Congratulations again, Karla and Kalpana!”
