As a part of the 2007 AFL-CIO DC Labor Film Fest and in partnership with ActiveVoice, the Center for Social Media screened the film, Made in LA (2007), which follows the remarkable journey of three Latina immigrants working in L.A.’s garment factories and their struggle for self-empowerment as they wage a three-year battle to bring a major clothing retailer to the negotiating table. Directed by Almudena Carracedo. The film aired on PBS’ acclaimed documentary film series, P.O.V. in early September as a Labor Day special.
