These are hard times for most working people. Although significant organizing efforts are underway within the labor movement, the way forward remains challenging. Portland Rising, a committee of Portland Jobs with Justice, is offering a five-week class starting in October, called Labor History for Labor Activists. The aim of the class is to help local activists learn from US labor history to become more effective organizers in their own workplaces, unions, and communities.
The class will be held in the Portland Jobs with Justice basement training room (1500 NE Irving Street), for five successive Tuesdays, from 7 to 8:30 pm, starting October 10, 2017. For more information send an email to JwJlaborclass@gmail.com, or register here .
