Welcome to the Social Justice History Project

Welcome to the Los Angeles Social Justice History Project, a collaborative effort to document and preserve the history of labor and social justice organizing in Los Angeles.  The project is an initiative of the UCLA Institute for Research on Labor & Employment (IRLE) working with the Center for Labor Research & Education, the Center for Oral History Research, and the History Department.

Our current focus is the history of the  Justice for Janitors campaign.  You can read more about the project in the L.A. Times  and the UCLA Daily Bruin.
