Greetings from the CSU Dominguez Hills Labor Studies Club!
On Behalf of the Labor Studies Club and the Labor Studies Department of California State University Dominguez Hills, we would like to invite you to participate in the Labor, Social, and Environmental Justice Fair we are planning for Thursday, April 21, 2011, from 11 AM to 9:30 PM on the campus of CSU Dominguez Hills at 1000 E. Victoria Street in Carson, CA.
We’re writing you because we think that your organization will make an impact on our campus community. Please let us know if you’d like to participate in one of the informational booths. This year we have set up a new process to apply for the free booths, and we are sending you the application. Our theme for this year is Healthy Jobs, Healthy Planet.
This is the third year for the Fair. Last year, we were very pleased with the wonderful turnout we were able to achieve, with 250 high school students coming from two different schools, and about 1000 of our own students attending, as well as members of surrounding communities. As we are celebrating Earth Day in conjunction with our Fair this year, we expect this event to increase its attendance and diversity.
This Fair has multiple goals. CSUDH is the only four-year university in Southern California to offer a major in Labor Studies, and we want folks to know about our Labor Studies Program. We think it is crucial to honor labor, promote labor and environmental studies, and we want to build our support for the labor and social justice community on our campus.
Karla Salazar, Southern California AFSCME's Political Action Representative, said of the Fair in 2010, “It was great to get exposure for our organization, and to network with so many different groups. The students were interested in the history of our union, with its roots in the sanitation strike and Martin Luther King’s support of labor.”
Our plan is to keep the entire event free of charge. We have been awarded partial grants from the Diane Middleton Foundation and from our Associated Student organization.
We plan to repeat our successful format of having
•outdoor booths for many organizations where one-on-one conversations can be held
•interactive workshops, art and photography exhibits indoors
•music, great speakers, performance, poetry, free food.
•live dance band and buffet at free evening celebration
Please join us!
