Help support the next generation of worker and social justice. 

It’s up to you to shape the next generation of labor and social justice leaders! Become a Friend of the Community and Labor Project and together we can ensure that our talented students will continue to strengthen the fight for justice.

Each summer we place graduate student fellows with some of the most dynamic labor unions and nonprofits in the San Diego region. We also employ both graduate and undergraduate students throughout the year on projects that advance their leadership skills, their research interests, and transform their lives for the better.
