How can you build powerful alliances with labor unions in your community? Economic and worker rights issues are at the heart of the ecological crisis, and unions are a powerful ally in the fight for climate justice.
We'll talk about how climate disruption impacts union members and how unions can make great allies. The workshop will cover strategies & best practices, resources for getting started, information on navigating union structure and processes, and other practical, hands-on lessons for campaigners.
