A forum co-sponsored with Labor Notes Michigan, home of the modern American labor movement, has passed a draconic "right to work law" that undermines the power of organized labor and signals a broad attack on organized labor. Not only is the labor movement but American democracy itself is under attack.  Without the political muscle of the labor movement the rights of women, health legislation, and a range of progressive causes are threatened. 
 
At the Alameda Public Affairs Forum we have asked three longtime labor activists in the Bay Area to present their thoughts on the current state of labor. They will lead a discussion about what new strategies and ideas are needed to repel this wave of anti-labor legislation and to build a labor movement that can revive the voice of all working people.
 
Panelists: TENAYA LAFORE, MIKE PARKER, AND STEVE EARLY
 
COME JOIN IN THE DISCUSSION OF THIS CRUCIAL MOMENT!
