UCLA Celebrates Senator Lola Smallwood-Cuevas
March 10, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The UCLA Labor Center and the Center for the Advancement of Racial Equity at Work (CARE at Work) invite you to a UCLA homecoming celebration for California State Senator Lola Smallwood-Cuevas.
Prior to being sworn in to represent California’s 28th Senate District, Senator Smallwood-Cuevas worked at the UCLA Labor Center for 15 years where she directed the CARE at Work project and co-founded the LA Black Worker Center, the country’s first Black worker center.
The LA Black Worker Center serves as a model for Black worker centers across the country that increase access to quality jobs, reduce employment discrimination, and improve industries that employ Black workers through action and unionization.
Join us to celebrate Senator Smallwood-Cuevas, an educator, labor organizer, and community advocate who has dedicated her life to economic and racial justice, and has advanced research, education, and community empowerment over the course of her career.
Please RSVP by March 3rd.
