 "Reversing Runaway Inequality"

Communications Workers of America (CWA) union and Southeast Michigan Jobs with Justice/Unity Campaign are offering a free training to help progressives get ready for the 2016 election.

Mike Schulte, staff person for the Michigan Communications Workers of America (CWA) union, recently conducted a workshop with Jerry King, UAW Local 140, for Southeast Michigan Jobs with Justice/Unity Campaign activists.

The workshop, "Reversing Runaway Inequality," was developed by CWA and Les Leopold of the New York Labor Institute. It provides activists the ammo they need to argue against the Building a Better Business Climate political agenda and helps them become "silo busters" and "movement builders."

Twenty (20) participants attended the JWJ session including the following labor and community groups: Michigan Voice, Empowered Voices, AFT/Lakeshore Schools, Women International League for Peace and Freedom, Our Walmart Alliance, Center for Community-Based Enterprises, Michigan Universal Health Care Action Network, West Side Mothers, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, UAW Local 228, A. Philip Randolph Institute, NAACP, Fannie Lou Hamer Political Action Committee, Restaurant Opportunities Center, Detroit Jews for Justice, and Economic Justice Alliance of Michigan.

A second workshop will be held Sept. 10 sponsored by the NAACP and the Fannie Lou Hamer PAC., with SEMJWJ/UC

More can be organized.
