Toronto — 27 February 2014.

A discussion with author and labour organizer Jane McAlevey.

Join Sam Gindin in a discussion with Jane McAlevey about her book Raising Expectations (and Raising Hell). In her book, McAlevey describes her experiences in the labour movement organizing bold, large scale campaigns in right to work Nevada and elsewhere in the U.S., drawing lessons about the potential for rebuilding the labour movement into a movement that can win. McAlevey’s experiences organizing in the student, environmental justice and union movement reflect her central belief that meaningful change can only come with “whole-worker organizing” that puts ordinary people at the center of their own struggle, in their workplaces and in their communities.

Moderated by Sarah Declerck. Also, Paul Gray reads the poem: “The World is in their Care,” by Gregg Shotwell.

See Sam Gindin’s review of the book – The Bullet No. 970.

Organized by the Greater Toronto Workers’ Assembly.
