The Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies at the University of Washington promotes education and research about work, working people and their organizations. Activities include classes, scholarships, research grants, events and conferences, and more. The Center was established in 1992 after a grassroots fundraising effort led by retired members of the International Longshore and Warehouse union.

In 2010, the Center established the Labor Archives of Washington, a collaborative project with the University of Washington Libraries, dedicated to preserving the history of working people and their unions. Funding for the Archives comes largely from the labor movement. More information is available at http://www.laborarchives.org
