The below message is being posted on behalf of the Washington State Labor Council.
Once again, the Washington State Labor Council is hosting MayWorks, an annual month-long celebration of workers’ culture and history first organized in 2012 by Washington’s labor movement — with plans for even more events in May 2013.
In addition, Washington Works, inspired by MayWorks, will be the central cultural focus at the Northwest Folklife Festival on Memorial Day weekend. It will feature performances, exhibits, panels, presentations, labor folklore videos, films, and demonstrations of craft traditions from a wide range of trades and local communities.
The MayWorks planning committee is currently working to coordinate and inspire MayWorks events throughout May all over Washington, so "like" the Facebook page for updates on events as they are announced at http://www.facebook.com/mayworkswa.
Help make this MayWorks a success! Raising our voices through the arts helps show the many faces of organized labor in Washington.
