Why did national unions recently call for a southern organizing strategy? How do the low wages of the South affect the rest of the country? How can worker organizing lead to more progressive public policies? Share your ideas and find out why now is the time to organize the South. Panelists will discuss the recent AFL-CIO’s resolution calling for a southern organizing strategy, the region’s labor history, current organizing campaigns, and the political influence of the South on the nation. RSVP. Sponsored by: Duke CLASS Center, NC State AFL-CIO, Student Action with Farmworkers, LAWCHA.
