Hi everyone 
     Just a heads up for a Labor Day event in Lawrence Ma. Come join us and visit our table where you can apply for our Massachusetts Collective Bargaining Solidarity plate! We will have a table in the labor history section. 

We are currently collecting applications for a plate design already approved by the MA RMV and the proceeds will go to labor education here in MA. You can find out more at www.prolaboralliance.org
   Bread & Roses Labor Day  Festival

The 29th annual Bread and Roses Heritage Festival is a celebration of   the ethnic diversity and labor history of Lawrence, Massachusetts.  It takes place on Labor Day, Monday, September 2, 12-6 p.m., in  honor of the most significant event in Lawrence history: the 1912 Bread and Roses Strike.  We memorialize the event with a variety of music and dance, poetry and drama, ethnic food, walking and trolley tours, and a section for history and labor organizations, as well as a speakers tent, all on Lawrence’s Campagnone Common. Lawrence History Live, our speakers forum, features many labor contributors, on topics from the Ettor- Giovannitti Trial to labor artist Ralph Fasanella, as well as numerous union speakers, from the Lawrence Teachers’ Union to SEIU locals. Bread and Roses is the only broadly multicultural festival in Lawrence, the Immigrant City.  And it is the only festival in the region which celebrates Labor Day, in the most appropriate location, the site of the Bread and Roses Strike. The festival is a one-day ‘open air’ celebration for the whole family. Lots of children’s activities:  pony rides, jugglers, hula hoops, and face painting.  -   Join us on September 2, 12-6 p.m.!
