Labor, Social, & Environmental Justice Fair

Welcome to the Labor, Social and Environmental Justice Labor Fair page

Greetings from the CSU Dominguez Hills Labor Studies Club!

On Behalf of the Labor Studies Club and the Labor Studies Dept. of California State University Dominguez Hills, we would like to invite you to participate in the Labor, Social, and Environmental Justice Fair to be held on Thursday, April 19, 2012, from 11 AM to 4 PM on the campus of CSU Dominguez Hills. Organizations will set up at around 8 AM. Unity Fest, with great music and cultural programming by our Multicultural Center at CSUDH, will be held in conjunction with the Fair, so a good time should be had by all. Our planning committee, consisting of students, community and labor organizations is finalizing the program, and we are inviting you to be part of this great event!

This is the fourth year for the Fair. Last year, we were very pleased with the wonderful turnout we were able to achieve, with 300 high school students coming from four different schools, dozens of community college students and over 700 of our own students attending. We’ve learned a lot from the past events and plan to make this the best Fair ever.

This Fair has multiple goals. CSUDH is the only four-year university in Southern University to offer a major in Labor Studies. We think it is crucial to honor labor and promote labor studies, and we want to build our support for the labor and social justice community. We view the Fair as an opportunity to deepen connections among campuses, labor unions, workers’ centers, community organizations, and people: students, faculty, union folk and community members. It is a space for transmitting information about organizing campaigns and work issues, jobs and internships, and discussions about broader issues. Our theme for this year is Together We are Unstoppable, Another World is Possible.

We plan to repeat our successful format of holding outdoor booths for many organizations where one-on-one conversations can be held while workshops and panels on a host of issues go on indoors, programmed by our events committee with involvement from organizations like yours. Faculty and students, community members and union workers and officials will move between the indoor meetings, exhibits, and the outdoor booth spaces with cultural programming and refreshments. This year we are also working with the Multicultural Center on our campus to expand our work to more students.

Please join us in providing us with your ideas and involvement to make this conference a success. To apply for a free booth, download and fill out and send in the booth application. Contact dhlabor@hotmail.com or vprice@csudh.edu with questions. More details will be available soon.

If you are coming from off-campus, you will need to park in one of the lots on campus and purchase a $5 parking permit at a kiosk. Here's the CSUDH map. The event will take place outside Loker Student Union, which is #26 on the map.

Hope to hear from you!
