Harry Van Arsdale Center for Labor Studies has created a program for its students, rank and file union electricians, plumbers, paraprofessionals and machinists and other trades to work toward a degree through studies that focus on work, workers and the working-class presence — social, cultural and institutional — in a historical and contemporary context.

The Workers Unite Film Festival is a celebration of Global Labor Solidarity.

The Festival aims to showcase student and professional films from the United States and around the world which publicize and highlight the struggles, successes and daily lives of all workers in their efforts to unite and organize for better living conditions and social justice. We are now a not-for-profit -501(c)(3) organization.

His dissertation examined the institutionalization of environmental and racial knowledges within the contemporary capitalist state.
