For nearly a half-century, Eric Mann has worked on anti-war, labor, and environmental causes. He looks at how race, labor, and immigration are reshaping the political and social lives of our urban areas. And he talks of forging coalitions, nurturing inclusion, seeding innovation, salvaging identity, and building community.

Mann is director of the Labor/Community Strategy Center in Los Angeles, a “think tank/act tank” that trains organizers to work for “environmental justice, mass transportation, and civil rights.”
