Can’t Stand That Outsourcing:
The Bay Area Rockin’ Solidarity Labor Chorus
Founded in 1999, The Bay Area Rockin’ Solidarity Labor Chorus performs songs from the deep-rooted and vibrant traditions that sustain the labor movement. This year, the Chorus celebrated May Day in Colorado, as guests of the Rocky Mountain Peace & Justice Center, with five gigs in three days. At LaborFest, the Chorus will be presenting its new program, Can’t Stand That Outsourcing, which takes on the history of globalization and the grassroots struggle against it.

El Coro Jornalero is made up of workers from both the San Francisco Day Labor Program and the Women’s Collective (La Colectiva de Mujeres). Our songs reflect the day-to-day life, historical presence, and variety of origins of the Latino community, as expressed in folk, historical, and popular music. At the presentation, we will include a short intro to each song explaining its social context. We look forward to incorporating children in the Coro in the near future.
