LA's CLEAN Carwash Campaign case study follows the effort between community organizations, worker centers, the United Steelworkers and the AFL-CIO to organize mostly undocumented workers and improve the industry's labor conditions. The campaign, which led to the first ever contract in the industry for 2011, underscores the importance of labor-community alliances, civic participation, and the integration of culturally appropriate organizing strategies.
