where we had felt we could become our own organization." The

Workrights Institute focuses exclusively on labor

and employment rights issues. Among its recent accomplishments:

Helping to pass a genetic discrimination

bill in Michigan, which provides protection to all individuals from

anyone who would try to use genetic

informaiton against them.

Adds Gruber: "We are the leading organization in the country that does

work on workplace privacy issues, and one of the only organizations in

the country that does work on Internet E-mail privacy." As for the

ACLU, he says, "we’re still cooperating, but we’re not technically

affiliated with them."
