Every two years in April, Labor Notes hosts a conference of about 2,000 labor organizers in Chicago. Labor Notes is the rabble-rousing left wing of the labor movement, and it works to support bottom-up, militant, democratic unionism and to empower rank-and-file members to hold union leadership accountable. This event is a crucial chance for rank-and-file members from across the country to come together and get important skills, learn about each others’ fights, and draw much-needed inspiration from stories of victory.
East Bay DSA labor organizers are hosting a huge fundraiser and dance party to raise money to attend the Labor Notes conference. We’ll start the night off with a small program highlighting several Bay Area struggles then it’s time to dance! Local labor unions members will also be in attendance, so this is a great opportunity for East Bay DSA members to meet union folks and support them from the bottom up!
- Cover: $5–35, (no one turned away for lack of funds)
- Free food and alcohol by donation
- All proceeds go to travel scholarships for Bay Area workers to attend the Labor Notes conference in April in Chicago. The scholarship money raised is sent to Labor Notes, which distributes it to applicants. Priority is given to low-wage workers, young workers, and workers who are not yet represented but trying to form unions.
