LA Black Worker Center
“We are building a world where Black workers thrive in an equitable economy that sustains and builds vibrant families and communities.”
The Los Angeles Black Worker Center (LA BWC) is a growing organization at the forefront of the racial justice and worker rights movements in LA since 2011. The LA BWC is recognized as a national leader in the effort to address the challenges of the Black jobs crisis of unemployment and underemployment, and the growing inequity in the labor market. The LA BWC works toward economic justice in low-income communities of color by building power amongst Black workers and their communities to expand access to quality employment and promote public policies and corporate practices for sustainable economic development in South LA neighborhoods. The LA BWC strategies include a comprehensive approach of leadership development; political education and training; worker organizing; innovative policy advocacy; coalition building; and comprehensive direct action campaigns that integrates strategic research and communications. The Center also provides employment and legal services support.
