The UCLA Labor Center believes that a public university belongs to the people and should advance quality education and employment for all. Housed in the UCLA Labor Center, CARE at Work (Center for the Advancement of Racial Equity at Work), engages Black workers and economic justice advocates and facilitates innovative solutions that address the needs of Black working-class people. Through a school-to-movement pathway of service, teaching, capacity-building, and research, our purpose is to reveal conditions of Black work in Southern California under global racial capitalism and model approaches for change.
Why We Do What We Do
The Center for the Advancement of Racial Equity (CARE) at Work, in partnership with the Los Angeles Black Worker Center and UCLA Labor Center, centers Black workers and community justice advocates in creating approaches and advancing innovative solutions that address the needs of Black working class people.
CARE at Work hosts the Freedom Fellowship and sponsors the “We Gon' Be Alright: Developing the Next Generation of Black Organizers” course. The Freedom Fellowship is a 10-week opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience working with activists and community organizers involved in the movement for civic and economic justice for Black workers.
