What Is SLAC?

The Student Labor Action Coalition is a coalition of students, workers, and labor activists dedicated to:

  • Organizing students to engage in labor solidarity activities locally and worldwide.
  • Educating students and the community about labor unions and workers' struggles for social justice.
  • Training students to be activists and organizers in the labor movement.
  • Actively opposing racism, sexism, imperialism, and other forms of oppression, while supporting the struggle for social justice for all.

SLAC meets weekly to discuss these kinds of issues, develop strategies and organize events. All meetings are open to everyone interested in learning more and getting involved. No previous experience or knowledge is required.

We are a completely volunteer run organization with no dues or other membership requirements. We are an affiliate of United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS), an international student network dedicated to organizing globally around similar issues.
