Our political education projects aim to build leadership and deepen analysis in the struggle against global capitalism. This winter, we will be launching a workshop series that will delve into movement history and examine class struggle, the economy, imperialism, race and national oppression, gender and patriarchy, immigration, and organizing.

Panelists: 

  • Bill Fletcher, Jr, Author of, They’re Bankrupting Us! And 20 Other Myths About Unions, and co-author of Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and a New Path toward Social Justice,
  • Barbara Ehrenreich, Author, Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America and Bait and Switch: The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream
  • Elmer Labog (via video), National Chairperson, Kilusang Mayo Uno, May First Workers Center in the Philippines
