Isn’t it time to fight back? This reading and discussion series is an instrument for doing just that.

Participants will look at past achievements and failures, traditions and innovations, to understand how workers got where we are today — and how to move forward.

Session 4, Wednesday 7/6, “Rise of the Excluded: Changing Demographics of the Workforce and Leadership of the Most Oppressed.”

In this week's session, participants will discuss the impact that women, immigrants, people of color, and LGBTQAI+ folks have had on shaping labor, and the leading role the most exploited workers must play in bringing back a fighting workers movement.

From the Knights of Labor in the 1870s, bringing together Black, white and immigrant workers, to the mass entry of women into the workforce in the 1960s and 70s, to current struggles of employees organizing at Amazon and Starbucks, the militant leadership of the most oppressed is a continuous thread.

Join the discussion!

$3-6 donation requested per session to benefit the Freedom Socialist newspaper, a great source of labor news, as part of the $100,000 Freedom Socialist Fund Drive.
