Overcoming Racism: A Radical Approach
Is racial conflict inevitable in a multi-racial society? Or is it the product of social and economic conditions--past and present--that can be understood and reversed?
This two-part class will use works by writers of color, feminists and radicals to explore these questions and the important leadership role of people of color in all the social justice movements. The challenges and rewards of organizing across color lines as well as various political approaches to accomplishing this will be discussed.

Section II: June 23-July 14 -- Bridging the Race Divide

Triangle: Remembering the Fire
This powerful documentary describes the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire that, in March 1911, killed 146 garment workers, mostly immigrant women. The preventable tragedy ignited an inferno of protest that fueled the infamous 1912 Bread and Roses strike and national workplace safety standards.
A post-film discussion will focus on women's crucial leadership in today's labor struggles for union recognition, better pay and working conditions.

Picket-sign making party for
Mother Jones Feminist Brigade to Longview!
Help create picket signs, practice songs, and compose chants for the Mother Jones Feminist Brigade to Longview to support the ILWU Longshore workers and members of the Women's Auxiliary.
Lend a hand to organize the Mother Jones Bbrigade as part of a mass solidarity caravan to Longview to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Women's Auxiliary of Local 21 and ILWU women. They face legal attacks for their direct action, with their ILWU brothers, against conglomerate grain distributor EGT.
This is part of a call-out from thousands of community members and union activists to confront union-busting, and rally against EGT when they try to load a grain ship with scab labor. The ship is expected to arrive in Longview at the end of January or beginning of February.
At the Bread and Roses Center, 6834 NE Glisan, Portland (Tri-Met bus line 19).
