National Consumers League

For more than 120 years, the National Consumers League has followed these founding principles: That the working conditions we accept for our fellow citizens should be reflected by our purchases, and that consumers should demand safety and reliability from the goods and services they buy.

Headquartered in Washington, DC, today NCL provides government, businesses, and other organizations with the consumer’s perspective on concerns including child labor, privacy, food safety, and medication information.


NCL is home to numerous consumer education and protection programs, including: LifeSmarts, Child Labor Coalition,, Consumers for Safe CBD, and Script Your Future. NCL is a private 501(c)(3) organization.
