Abstract

The UCLA Center for Labor Research and Education (Labor Center) has recently opened the Los Angeles Black Worker Center (BWC) in partnership with labor and commu‐ nity. The mission of the Los Angeles Black Worker Center is to change public policies and corporate practices in Los Angeles in order to advance economic justice for African American workers as well as the families and communities that rely on them. Our long‐term goals are to dismantle the barriers of employment discrimination, create access to quality jobs, and transform low‐paying, low‐skilled jobs into fulfilling and sustaining careers and vocations through unionization and leadership development.
