General

  • Mission:
  • Since 1996, CLUE-LA has been organizing faith leaders to achieve economic justice, self-empowerment and respect for the region's working poor. CLUE-LA's faith rooted organizing model is recognized nationally for its unique ability to bring disparate people and forces together for justice. CLUE-LA works with hundreds of faith leaders respresenting a broad spectrum of faiths, ethnicities and geographic regions of Los Angeles primarily through local committees.

  • History:
  • Recent examples of CLUE victories include:
    - The Hotel Workers campaign: Due in significant part to direct action, including arrests led by CLUE’s LAX Committee, two hotels serving Los Angeles International Airport have negotiated new contracts with their workers, with two more likely to ensue. These contracts will help lift nearly 1000 predominantly Latino immigrant workers out of poverty.
    - Security Officers campaign: Religious leaders organized by CLUE have helped assure fair treatment of security officers, approximately 70% of whom are African-American and live in/around impoverished South Los Angeles. CLUE held interfaith Gospel prayer meetings within building owners’ headquarters, forcing them to talk with workers and community representatives. CLUE’s leadership helped the officers win union recognition in 2007, raising their wages by nearly 40% and providing health coverage for the first time ever.
