Event at a Glance

This workshop has two parts. We ask that you attend both. The sessions will be on Saturday, August 5 and 12, from 12 to 2 p.m. Eastern (9 to 11 a.m. Pacific). This is an online workshop and will be held via Zoom.

How does racism show up in our workplaces and our unions? What are some strategies to confront it and build solidarity for a stronger, multiracial labor movement? And what can you say to union siblings who aren’t convinced racial justice has anything to do with union politics?

This workshop addresses how class and race are inextricably linked, tracing back the origins of “race” as an invention of the ruling class to divide workers. We'll talk about how to move to strategies of unity.

Accessibility: Zoom's automatic captions will be turned on during the session. Please feel free to contact us with other accessibility needs or questions.
