Can The Boss Get Away With That?

10:00 am – 12:00 pm – Know your rights at work! Whether you are in the service sector or are a contracted worker, people have rights that are intended to protect them from exploitation, wage theft and abuse at their jobs. This workshop, hosted by labor educator Judy Ancel, will examine those rights, and give participants the tools they need to exercise those rights to defend themselves and their coworkers from bad bosses and contract mismanagement.

Storytelling Workshop w/ Center for Story-based Strategy

1:00 pm – 4:00 pm – Stories are how we share the life-defining experiences that shape our values and our view of the world. Join us as we learn to better articulate our individual and shared experiences to better make meaning of this moment together. Hear the stories of others going through similar experiences as you. And in the process, help us build a shared framework for strengthening our ability to win dignity at our jobs and in our communities.

Activist Art with Local Artists

2:00 pm -6:00 pm <– NOTE New Time! – This workshop will explore the imagery of working peoples’ struggles, from the beginnings of the labor movement through today. Julia Cole, Dave Loewenstein, and Rico and IT will teach participants techniques to make public art that can represent today’s class struggle and galvanize opposition to corporate power.

Organizing 101

4:30 pm – 6:00 pm <– NOTE New Time! – What does it mean to organize your coworkers to exercise their power at work, and what new rights and benefits can working people win if they do? Led by writer and organizer Kim Kelly, this workshop will examine what it takes to build the power we need to secure higher wages, better benefits and job security in the workplace.
