For more than twenty years, Mike Garcia led the legendary Justice for Janitors movement in California, mobilizing thousands of immigrant workers to build one of the most powerful and dynamic unions in the country. The Justice for Janitors union conducted strikes that reverberated across the country, achieved path-breaking victories that transformed the way labor organizes, and moved political campaigns that won victories for millions of immigrant and low-wage workers across the country and shifted political power in California to the left.
