Every July day has Laborfest events, some of which are missing from the red letter listings. This "al fresco" textbook for all of us will teach the importance of a general strike which we need to put an end to the profit motive that is the cause of the budget "crisis" and war. On July 24 at 6 p.m., the tenants of the old Labor Temple where the 1934 General Strike vote took place invite you to a free open house for an evening of live music, food and memories.

The Labor Temple: Past And Present-Free event
The tenants of the Redstone Building, the Redstone Labor Temple Association, invite you to an open house and evening of remembrance and entertainment at the historic San Francisco Labor Temple, 16th & Capp St. IT WAS IN THE AUDITORIUM OF THIS LABOR TEMPLE WHERE THE STRIKE VOTE OF JULY 14, 1934 TOOK PLACE.

Built in 1914 by the San Francisco Labor Council, the Labor Temple housed numerous labor union offices and meeting halls through the years. It played a significant role in the 1917 United Railroads Streetcar Strike and the 1934 General Strike. Join us for an evening of live music, food and memories, celebrating the building’s history, murals, and tenants, past and present.
