The Center for Social and Economic Justice, at 16th Street and Capp, serves as an incubator of grassroots organizing and movement building. It provides workshops to develop the leadership of low-wage and immigrant workers fighting for justice, equality and sustainability, to take collective action for self-determination.

The Center is a project of the Alliance for Social and Economic Justice, which is a collaboration of the San Francisco Living Wage Coalition, Crossroads Women’s Center, Global Women’s Strike, the Bay Area Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador, Global Exchange and the Day Labor Program/Colectiva de Mujeres.

The Center for Social and Economic Justice…

  • provides workshops, using popular education techniques, for working people to develop an understanding of substantive democracy and how to project an inspiring vision that a better world is possible.
  • places music, art and culture at the center of an organizing strategy to help people and their communities heal themselves, build bridges and inspire each other to struggle to fulfill their dreams for the future.
  • builds a regenerative and restorative approach to heal the planet, respect labor and nourish the spirit.
  • creates a multilingual space for language justice so people can communicate, learn and strategize together.
