Education

“We educate people in order to organize them. We don’t organize people in order to educate them.” — Fred Ross, Sr.

New Labor provides a number of educational programs to our members, from occupational health and safety training through our Latino Occupational Safety and Health Initiative (LOSHI), to English as a Second Language and worker’s rights seminars.

In order to help build our members’ collective consciousness and initiate thought and discussions based on our members’ concrete experiences , all of our educational programs employ the Small Group Activity Method (SGAM). Learn more about SGAM here.
