Overview and metadata sections
The Student Labor Action Project (SLAP) is a joint initiative of Jobs with Justice and the United States Student Association that engages students and student organizations from multiple campuses in economic justice campaigns. The University of Pennsylvania chapter of SLAP (Penn SLAP) was established in 2005.
The records of the University of Pennsylvania Student Labor Action Project (Penn SLAP) document the group's activities from its founding in 2005 to 2013. The records specifically detail Penn SLAP's 2013 Justice on the Menu campaign, which sought to improve wages and benefits for staff of the University of Pennsylvania's Falk Dining Commons. The records consist of flyers, press releases, and articles from The Daily Pennsylvanian newspaper.
The University of Pennsylvania Student Labor Action Project records are arranged alphabetically.
Penny C. Jennewein, a 2014 graduate of the College of Arts and Sciences, donated the records of the University of Pennsylvania Student Labor Action Project to the University Archives (UARC) in March 2014 (accession number 2014:016).
