Diagram draft

The UCLA Labor Center is a particularly vibrant institutional exemplar of community engaged research and advocacy, with focused areas of research and public policy campaign work. We will hear from leaders of the labor center and discuss the prospects for replicating the model in Orange County through the UCI Community Labor Project. UCI Law serves as one of the central nodes in the project at the university and we hope to talk about ways in which we might grow the project and advance community engagement. We will also discuss the wage theft research being developed by the project with the assistance of our UCLA Labor Center colleagues.
