The Center for the Advancement of Racial Equity (CARE) at Work, at the UCLA Labor Center, will partner with the Southern California Black Worker Hub to convene nearly 100 Black workers, policymakers, agencies, foundations and community partners to engage in solution-oriented conversations from noon to 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16 at LA Trade Technical College, 400 W. Washington Blvd.
This event is an effort to strengthen collaborations that will result in a brighter future for Black workers. The Black Worker Summit is a united space where stakeholders and Black workers collaborate for the justice and equity required to improve Black futures.
The Summit is being organized based on the fundamental principle that all Black workers deserve access to safe, good-paying jobs that are viable career paths and free from discrimination. Recommendations from the UCLA CARE at Work’s recent report, Essential Stories: Black Worker COVID-19 Economic Health Impact Survey, will help inform and guide the policy priorities and essential investments needed to ensure that Black workers thrive.
The Center for the Advancement of Racial Equity (CARE) at Work engages Black workers and economic justice advocates and facilitates innovative solutions that address the needs of Black working-class people. Through a school-to-movement pathway of service, teaching, capacity-building and research, the purpose is to reveal conditions of Black workers in Southern California under global racial capitalism and model approaches for change.
