Labor photographer Joe Blum and others will talk about how the old bridge is being taken down. We will hear about the labor and maritime history of the San Francisco Bay Area from historians including Harvey Smith, Gray Brechin and others. We will also have trade unionists talking about labor struggles in the Bay Area and the struggle to protect the environment.
We will also have music with labor guests from around the world and a dinner.
