On Thursday, April 22nd at 5:00pm, Jono Shaffer and Stephen Lerner will join students of the UCLA Labor Studies program to talk about the pathbreaking campaign Justice for Janitors. The architects behind one of the most important union organizing campaigns of the last few decades will explore how Justice for Janitors expanded into a global movement by providing an important model for the future of organizing.

Jono Shaffer is a Los Angeles based organizer with SEIU. He worked on and helped lead the Justice for Janitors Campaign in Los Angeles.

Stephen Lerner is a labor and community organizer and architect of the groundbreaking Justice for Janitors campaign. Over the past three decades Lerner has organized hundreds of thousands of janitors, farm workers, garment workers, and other low-wage workers into unions, resulting in increased wages, first-time health benefits, paid sick days, and other improvements on the job.
