This past year we celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of the UCLA Downtown Labor Center, which opened its doors on Labor Day 2002. The Labor Center established a bridge that connects the university to the local labor community and develops collaborative projects between unions, worker centers, and community organizations dedicated to racial and economic justice.

While the center has established a strong reputation in the fight for worker and immigrant rights, we do not currently own the space that houses our projects and research.

We are excited to announce the Build Our Future capital campaign to establish a permanent home to strengthen research, outreach, and public-service activities for unions, workers, immigrants, and people of color.

We will officially launch our Build Our Future capital campaign at this year’s annual banquet, where we will honor extraordinary leaders for justice: Rev. James Lawson Jr., Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, and SEIU Executive Vice President Luisa Blue.

We will also celebrate the UCLA Labor Studies graduating class of 2018. We invite you join the celebration and join our campaign!

Thank you for being part of the UCLA Labor Center family.
