100th Anniversary of the San Francisco Labor Temple – Street Fair
The Redstone Labor Temple Association, dedicated to preserving labor history, is holding a street fair on Saturday, July 5, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Capp Street, between 15th and 16th Streets, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the San Francisco Labor Temple at 2940-16th Street. Built by the San Francisco Labor Council in 1914, it housed the City’s main labor unions and was the site of meetings and planning for the 1934 General Strike. It was later renamed the Redstone Building when it was sold in 1969.
The street fair will have a stage with local musicians, artists, dancers, performers, poets, and puppeteers on themes that relate to the history of the San Francisco labor movement. While celebrating the history of the labor movement, the street fair will heighten public visibility of the current struggles of the Fight for the $15 minimum wage, the Fight for a Community Jobs Program, and the Fight against Displacement in our Neighborhoods.
