This campus-community event will showcase the findings of Working for Dignity, a two-year-long research and multimedia project carried out by UCSC students on workers and working conditions in low-wage jobs in Santa Cruz County.  In addition to conducting a large-scale survey and ethnography of local low-wage workers, UCSC students have created a digital repository of workers' stories.  They and local workers will share the fruits of their labor at this free, public gathering.  The evening will conclude with a conversation on issues facing low-wage workers in our community and possible steps forward.

The Chicano Latino Research Center is proud to cosponsor this free, public event with the Center for Labor Studies, Everett Program, Institute for Humanities Research, Division of Social Sciences, University of California Humanities Research Institute, California Rural Legal Assistance, Inc., Day Worker Center of Santa Cruz County, and Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History.
