As always, this year's Summer Institute will tackle the urgent issues confronting our lives, our communities and our unions. We'll start the weekend with a discussion of the
economic crisis, led by Emily Kawano, Executive Director of the Center for
Popular Economics. We'll have workshops on organizing for a more just economy, building coalitions to create green jobs and save our environment, immigration and workplace sexual harassment. We're also offering steward's training and a contract negotiation workshop, both known for building solid, practical union skills.

What better way to learn these new skills and engage with critical contemporary issues than with a diverse group of powerful activists and leaders? You'll leave the Institute ready to take on challenges and reach for your goals, after in-depth leadership development workshops and connecting with women from around the state.A performance by Enchanted Circle Theater on the life and work of
Sojourner Truth and a graduation address by Carol Moruzzi, a pioneering Tradeswoman, will round out the weekend and send us back to our work with renewed inspiration and determination.

Don't miss this rich, empowering weekend!
