ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED, BUT WALK-INS ARE WELCOME! Simply show up and register on site.

Budget cuts, union-busting, privatization, and corporate outsourcing schemes are wreaking havoc on working people in the DC Metro Area and worldwide. We need a strong, fighting labor movement to take on these anti-worker attacks.

Labor activists in the DC Metro Area are planning a day of skill-building workshops, education, and strategy discussions to strengthen the local labor movement with rank-and-file worker power!
