About Students for Economic Justice (SEJ)
The foundation of social change is organized and informed people. Since its inception in 2000, the Students for Economic Justice (SEJ) Fellowship program has trained the next generation of young leaders and organizers who push forward social change and economic justice in San Diego. This intensive full-time, $16 an-hour, six-week program provides college students with trainings in local politics and issues, organizing, outreach, while also providing hands-on experience with community organizations and local labor unions. SEJ graduates have gone on to work for local unions, social justice non-profits, and have run for office in San Diego.
