City of LA : Keep Funding the Day Labor Centers

Friends and Allies:

The seven Day Labor Centers funded by the City of Los Angeles are in danger of closing their doors as of July 1st, 2015. We ask that you support us in demanding that Mayor Eric Garcetti include the seven Day Labor centers in the 2015-2016 fiscal budget!

These centers are more than just spaces for predominantly immigrant workers to seek work. They are hubs of leadership development, skill building, and popular education.

Vote for IDEPSCA to Win $10,000 and the People's Momentum Award

IDEPSCA's work is for and by immigrant community members and their families. We see this through Mujeres en Accion, household workers who meet to develop their leadership skills in order to change their realities around issues of labor and health. We see this in our Aprendamos afterschool program. Currently meeting twice a week in Lincoln Heights, grade schoolers meet with their families to learn about water conservation. Their session will culminate with a community mural that the young people will design and paint.
