Who’s got the power? We got the power!
At the LABWC, Black workers are coming together to fight for greater control over our workplaces and our lives.
Who is the Los Angeles Black Worker Center?
The LABWC is a grassroots non-profit organization committed to improving the living and working conditions of Black workers across Los Angeles. We lead advocacy efforts that influence policy, corporate practices, and government initiatives in favor of stronger labor protections, fair wages, and workplace equity. Championing our community organizing and programs are our worker members, staff, volunteers, and board members, in addition to a robust network of coalition partners, allies, and funders.
Our Committees and Councils
Worker Justice Organizing Committee (WJOC)
The WJOC is a grassroots leadership committee that drives the LAWBC’s campaigns, as well as oversees membership outreach, recruitment, and participation.
Worker Advisory Committee (WAC)
The WAC is a support network for Black workers. In a safe and judgment-free environment, low-wage and underrepresented workers receive industry mentorship and occupational coaching.
Black Labor Construction Council (BLCC)
The BLCC is a legacy council that was a multi-craft trades committee addressing underrepresented workers in the regulated construction industry. Through policy and workforce development strategies, the BLCC expanded access and retention in a sector that has historically excluded Black workers.
