The Labor/Community Strategy Center is a “think tank/act tank” for regional, national and international movement building, founded in 1989 and based in the 10 million-person world city of Los Angeles. Our campaigns, projects, and publications are rooted in working class communities of color, and address the totality of urban life with a particular focus on civil rights, environmental justice, public health, global warming, and the criminal legal system. We build consciousness, leadership, and organization among those who face discrimination and societal attack--people of color, women, immigrants, workers, LGBT people, youth, all of whom comprise our membership. Our work challenges both major political parties and takes on the organized Right.
