Black workers fighting for justice
We have the right to feel safe and supported in our jobs.
We're leading efforts to secure 1000 career-focused employment opportunities for Black Angelenos. Our campaign seeks to create direct pathways for Black Angelenos to access high-quality employment—good paying jobs that allow us to build a better economic future for our communities.
Ready 2 Work
Our Ready 2 Work program is a series of workshops where Black workers share political education and build the skills needed to succeed in the workplace. The program provides a welcoming environment to receive industry-specific coaching and mentorship. Participants learn best practices for the job application and interview process, as well as how to navigate challenges that may arise at work.
Since 2009, the LA Black Worker Center’s programs and campaigns have brought better wages, greater job opportunities, and stronger labor protections to our community. We continue to pave the way locally for Black workers to have quality living and working conditions—and for workplaces to be accountable to low-wage workers everywhere. With the support of our donors, we’re creating the world we want to live in. And that’s one where Black workers thrive.
Power in numbers
The LABWC is where Black workers come together to support each other.
The LABWC is a member-led organization focused on improving the living and working conditions of Black workers across Los Angeles. Our membership is made up of Black workers and community members, particularly low-wage workers from construction, healthcare, public sector, security, and service industries. Leading campaigns that bring justice to the workplace, worker members are at the forefront of the American labor movement.
