Working and Organizing Everyday:  Workers, Families, and Communities in 
Local and Global Struggles

Featuring:  Plenary Sessions on The State of Working Families in the Inland 
Valley and The Struggle for a Continental Living Wage

Global economic transformations coupled with U.S. imperial policies have 
radically transformed the working and living conditions in communities 
across the globe.  We invite proposals from scholars and community activists 
for panels, interactive workshops, performances, displays, art, film, and 
music that explore the local and global impacts of these processes and how 
workers and communities are challenging them.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:
-Historical and contemporary discussions of working class movements
- Organizing in the Inland Valley
- Immigrant worker organizing
-Global resistance to neoliberalism
-Impact of NAFTA and CAFTA on workers and communities
-Labor education
-Nativism and anti-immigrant movements
-Gender, race, and sexuality in organizing
-Youth and student activism
-Prison Labor
-Fair Trade Movements
- War, imperialism, and resistance

Proposal deadline is March 1, 2008.  Please send a short (1-2 paragraph) 
proposal and the name and contact information of the participants to Enrique 
C. Ochoa at ecochoa at csupomona.edu at CLASS Dean's Office, Cal Poly Pomona, 
Pomona, CA 91768.  For further information contact Enrique Ochoa at (909)
