What California Labor History Tells Us About Building the Resistance to Trump
By Fred B. Glass, author of From Mission to Microchip: A History of the California Labor Movement

At a moment when American democracy is threatened as never before, progressives need models for building an effective resistance. In California, many examples of strategy and tactics live in the hidden history of working people and their struggles for social justice.

This talk will present and interpret several iconic events that shaped the way working people live in California today, and helped create the difference between the progressive outcome of the latest election (taxing the rich to fund schools, repealing anti-immigrant laws on the books, a resounding vote against Trump) compared with the rest of the country.

Fred Glass wrote and directed Golden Lands, Working Hands, a video series (1999) on history of the California labor movement. Glass wrote From Mission to Microchip: A History of the California Labor Movement (2016) and wrote and directed a short animated cartoon, Tax the Rich: An Animated Fairy Tale (2012)
