On May 13 and 14, 2016, we held our second biennial Solidarity Event under the theme, "Labor and Community Standing Together in Solidarity for Racial Equity and Justice."
Friday afternoon began with an executive board meeting, followed by a reception and dinner. Guest speakers were WSLC Secretary-Treasurer Lynne Dodson and Martin Luther King County Labor Council Executive Secretary-Treasurer Nicole Grant. Following dinner, a number of us spent time enjoying games.
Saturday we had a community partners, students, and faculty at Renton Technical College. A number of workshops were held, a panel of success stories on organizing for racial justice, and ending with a collective action to support students, faculty, and staff at Green River College.
