Looking for community and inspiration during COVID-19? Join the Queer & Feminist caucus for our Zoom happy hours and discussions on labor history. We want to explore the rich history of women and queer folks in the US labor movement together!
This week we’ll learn about the Pawtucket Mill Strike in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. It was the first textile strike in the US, and was primarily organized by women. We’ll learn from and about our comrades who fought for us, drawing lessons for the organizing opportunities that present themselves in the time of COVID-19 and beyond.
