Building a Labor Movement for Racial and Economic Justice: Reclaiming MLK's Labor Legacy

It's time to build a grassroots labor movement in Philly to support Black Lives Matter and future struggles for racial and economic justice. From violence against black youth, to violence against low-wage workers, to violence against our schools and communities, as union members and supporters we know that our struggles are all connected.

As part of the MLK DARE Philadelphia weekend of events, join us for an informal discussion on the role of labor in Black Lives Matter and how unions, communities, workers, universities, and non-profits (and everyone else!) can come together to build a lasting labor movement for social justice in Philadelphia. 

Note: You do not have to be a union member to join us. Everyone interested in how the labor movement can make Philadelphia a better and more just city are invited!

Hosted by the Caucus of Working Educators15 an Hour Now Philadelphia, and Serve the People - PHL. (Co-sponsors are welcome! Get in touch!)
