How do you get involved in the labor movement as a student? Join us for a conversation about organizing at the grassroots level with labor studies majors Bryanna (Bry) Gonzalez and Jazmin Rivera from the Student Labor Advocacy Project (SLAP) at UCLA.
Bryanna (Bry) Gonzalez is a 4th year Labor Studies major with minors in Chicanx and Central American Studies and Social Thought. They are a proud first-gen student and have worked with the Labor Studies program for 3 years, and is one of the current interns with AFSCME 3299. They have been organizing with SLAP since 2019 and hope to continue once they graduate in the spring.
Jazmin Rivera (she/her) is a 4th year Labor Studies and Political Science double major with a minor in Chicanx studies. Currently, Jazmin is one of the AFSCME 3299 interns as well as SLAP’s Labor Solidarity Secretary. As a struggling student worker, Jazmin found community in student labor organizing and hopes to continue to be involved in the labor movement once she graduates in the spring.
