For the past few months, Olivia Muzzy and Lisa Longmire (KRL/WPEA) have been involved in planning this workshop opportunity with the Washington State Labor Council, the Kitsap Central Labor Council and the Olympic Labor Council - we now have a date/time for this workshop, and a poster to share with you! "Courageous Conversations on Race and the Labor Movement" is a (free) workshop intended to provide a practical toolkit to identify the impacts of racism in the workplace and how we can build union solidarity through recognizing and responding to instances of racism. This is a hybrid style workshop, with an option to attend via Zoom as well as two in-person locations (in Silverdale and in Port Angeles). The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, May 19 from 5:45-7:45pm.

A HUGE thank you to our outstanding members that have worked so hard to put this together! We thank you for all you do!
