The next Labor Notes Conference will be held in Chicago, March 25-27, 2022.

Visit for more details as it gets closer. Registration will open in the fall of 2021.

We made the hard choice to postpone the 2020 Labor Notes Conference due to the coronavirus pandemic. The conference was originally scheduled to take place April 17-19, 2020, in Chicago.

Like many of you, we had been eagerly anticipating what was shaping up to be far and away the biggest Labor Notes Conference ever. Unfortunately, the very thing that makes the conference so special—the horizontal exchange among labor activists who come from all over the country and across the world—would have made it a public health danger in the spring of 2020 or even 2021.

If you were registered for the 2020 Conference, you should have received a series of emails about your options. Fair warning: we do need to close the books on 2020, so we can only honor refund requests until May 1, 2021. Questions? Email refunds[at]labornotes[dot]org or call 313-842-6262.
