UCLA Labor Center

50th Anniversary


Over its 50 years, the UCLA Labor Center has emerged as a historic social justice institution in Los Angeles. It has provided critical support to labor issues and forged deep partnerships between worker centers and unions. It has been a safe space and ground zero for the immigrant youth movement. And the UCLA Labor Center’s programs have led countless young people to dedicate their lives to social change and become the next generation of labor leaders.
