Courageous Conversations on Race and the Labor Movement, Hybrid Workshop for Kitsap & Olympic Labor Councils

How do we talk to members and coworkers who think differently than us (politics, racial and gender justice, membership, etc...)? Would you like to be a better leader in your workplace and a voice for change? These are such big issues – what can we actually do about it?

This participatory workshop is designed to give you practical tools for building union solidarity within your workplace. This 2 hour session will help you to engage in effective conversations to build unity and solidarity among those you work with. Learn more at
