Are We Wisconsin? Labor Organizing in the Obama Era

As the deepening recession has led to high unemployment and coordinated attacks on organized labor, we need new strategies to end inequality and win widespread improvements in wages and working conditions.

Join local organizers to discuss innovative approaches in the fight for workers rights in today’s challenging economic and political climate.
