The Organization for Black Struggle (OBS) was founded in 1980. A group of veteran activists, students, union organizers and community members in St. Louis were seeking to address the needs and issues of the Black working-class. Their vision is to contribute to the creation of a society free of all forms of exploitation and oppression. Their mission is to build a movement that fights for political empowerment, economic justice and the cultural dignity of the African-American community, especially the Black working class. Their theory of change is to educate and organize the Black working class to act and in their own self-interests and to build political and economic power in a unified, strategic way.
