Collaboration with the Garment Workers Center

In March 2017: CSULA students Chyna Barron and Yvonne Xiao, worked with Professor Lung and Frau Fiber to develop a ineractive quilt, celebrating 100 years of Garment Work in LA.  The celebration was hosted by UCLA Labor Center, and organized by Caroline Luce, and her labor history students.

Finally ART 3110 students worked with the GWC to produce a “dictionary” exploring social justice issues related to the industry.   This booklet will be used by the center to help to support workers in downtown LA to know their rights.
