Building for the General Strike. A wave of strikes and calls for strikes is leading in the direction of a general strike. The strike movement gained momentum with the Poor People's Campaign's and others' announcement of a July 20 "Strike for Black Lives," and with widespread declarations by teachers' unions that teachers will return to classrooms only when safety is assured for all present. The October 3 workshop, 11am-1pm via Zoom, will discuss the current movement, earlier general-strike movements, and how the GRP can participate. Tentative date Saturday, Oct 3rd, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
- Race and Reconciliation in Massachusetts. This workshop will present the campaign for a State Commission on Race & Reconciliation, an initiative to examine 400 years of white supremacy shaping society and how we can transform it into a world of justice and dignity envisioned by Martin Luther King. It will also present the fight to rename Slave Trader (AKA Faneuil) Hall, a symbol of the living legacy of slavery. Not one of the 150 resident businesses is owned by a person of color, in a city where average black family wealth is $8 compared with average white family wealth of $247,000. Presented by Kevin Peterson, executive director of the New Democracy Coalition. Oct 10th, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
