Spring 2021 Field Studies in Labor and Community Organizing

Public Policy 162AC
Field Study in Labor Organizing

This field study course is designed for undergraduates/graduates who have an interest in social/economic justice, and seek to earn academic credit while gaining experience in organizing. Building upon the Labor Center’s Summer program, it allows students to apply existing organizing skills/acquire new knowledge in community and labor organizations. Students will be matched with our community partners that promote the interests of Bay area working families. Classroom-based guided reflection, skills development, career information, and engagement with current debates will complement the fieldwork. This exp can open the door to life-long careers as organizers, researchers, policy analysts, political lobbyists, communication specialists and leaders.
