SEJ is a six-week program that trains college students to be powerful leaders as labor and community organizers. SEJ fellows are placed with social justice and labor organizations, where they learn the skills and tools that talented, passionate students need to lead the fight for economic justice in San Diego. The SEJ fellowship also provides trainings that build up their organizing toolkits through political education, organizing trainings, and hands-on, in-the-field experience working on campaigns for economic and social justice.

#TrustBlackWomen: A Celebration of Women's Joy and Healing
Wednesday, February 14, 2018
In September 2017 women from all around the nation gathered in D.C for the first March For Black Women, to denounce the state violence, sexualized violences, murders and brutalization facing all Black women and additionally the disappearances of our girls from their homes and schools. This March, San Diego will have its first March for Black Women, hosted by Black Lives Matter San Diego. As a precursor to this upcoming event, CGS and Black Lives Matter San Diego invites you to an evening full of community, fun, and reflection as we collectively envision a world in which everyone trusts Black women. Since it will also be Valentine’s Day the latter half of the event will include fun interactive stations where we’ll get to show each other and ourselves some much needed love. This event centers the experiences of self-identified Black women, but is open to everyone.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
