Detroit Troublemakers School 2021

November 20, 2021

Event at a Glance


November 20, 2021, 1:00 pm


$25, $15 and $40

Detroiters are planning a day of skill-building workshops, education, and strategy discussions to put some movement back in the labor movement. The goal is to help workers get active in resisting management attacks—in other words, to make “good trouble.”

The school will be a great opportunity for union members and other workplace activists to share strategies and build the solidarity required in these tough times.

Workshop materials and plentiful snacks are included with cost of registration.

Adhering to Wayne State's rules, participants must show proof of vaccination against Covid and wear a mask in public spaces.

WHEN: Saturday, November 20, 1pm-6pm

WHERE: Wayne State University, Detroit (tentative)

COST: We have a sliding scale of suggested donations: $25 regular registration, $15 reduced registration, $40 for regular registration plus a one-year subscription to Labor Notes magazine. Walk-in registrations are welcome!

Workshops will include:
•Beating Apathy
•Turning an Issue into a Campaign
•Contract Campaigns
•Race and Labor
•Creative Collective Action in the Workplace
•Finding Leaders and Mapping Your Workplace

Full program and workshop descriptions available soon.
