About the event: Dallas Troublemakers are planning a day of skill-building workshops, education, and strategy discussions to put some movement back in the labor movement. This school will be a great opportunity for union members and labor activists to share strategies and build the solidarity required in these tough times. A light breakfast, lunch, and workshop materials are included with registration. Workshops on Secrets of a Successful Organizer, Building Power at Your Worksite and more! We will have a full agenda for the school, including workshops and plenaries, as we get closer. For more info, contact Bianca Cunningham of Labor Notes: (816) 699-5568, bianca[at]labornotes[dot]org. Cost: $20 regular registration; $10 low-income. For $35, you get a regular registration plus a half-price one-year subscription to Labor Notes.

Register online below or at the door (though please e-mail bianca[at]labornotes[dot]org if you're paying at the door, so we can get an accurate head count!). No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
