The Labor/Community Strategy Center is a multi-racial social justice organizing addressing the totality of urban life. Our work spans sustainable communities, urban transportation, climate change, criminal justice, environmental justice and youth leadership and organizing development, focused on low-income working class communities of color. We see ourselves as a national organization with a strong regional base in LA County.

FFSC Taking Action Clubs in LA High Schools

The Community Rights Campaign addresses widespread public health problems among high school youths of color—obesity, substance abuse, mental illness, chronic disease, and homicide—which we believe are directly exacerbated by racialized “zero tolerance” policies exercised within the Los Angeles public high school system that increasingly address student behavior issues through repression and the criminalization of everyday life for so many youth.
The core demands of the Community Rights Campaign’s No to Pre-Prison Project are:
Decriminalize truancy—Repealing LA’s “daytime curfew,” the legal basis for truancy and tardy tickets.
End Zero Tolerance policies and transform school culture—Reversing the schools-as-jails culture and creating positive learning environments.
Police accountability—Establishing a community oversight body for misconduct by LASPD officers and reduce and restrict school police involvement in enforcing discipline on school campuses.

Fight for the Soul of the Cities

The Fight for the Soul of the Cities is an international vision for urban organizing—focusing on Los Angeles, and from there, to the major cities of the U.S. in solidarity with the cities and people of the Third World. It is the product of 24 years of organizing by the Labor/Community Strategy Center, 20 years of work by our Bus Riders Union, and seven years of work by our Community Rights Campaign. It builds on our vision for L.A. and the urban movement in Reconstructing Los Angeles from the Bottom Up, written in 1992, and Towards a Program of Resistance, written by our Program Demand Group in 2002.

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
