Working and Organizing Everyday: Workers, Families, and Communities in Local and Global Struggles

  • Organizing in the Inland Valley
  • Immigrant worker organizing
  • Global resistance to neoliberalism
  • Impact of NAFTA and CAFTA on workers and communities -Labor education -Nativism and anti-immigrant movements
  • Gender, race, and sexuality in organizing -Youth and student activism -Prison Labor -Fair Trade Movements
  • War, imperialism, and resistance

 

Proposal deadline is March 1, 2008. Please send a short (1-2 paragraph) proposal and the name and contact information of the participants to Enrique C. Ochoa at ecochoa@csupomona.edu at CLASS Dean’s Office, Cal Poly Pomona, Pomona, CA 91768. For further information contact Enrique Ochoa at (909) 869-3115 or [mailto]ecochoa@csupomona.edu[mailto].
