• Initiated a biannual Labor History Film Festival in partnership with the New Haven Public Library.
• Assisted in the creation of a local labor history mural by artist Susan Bowen for the newly renovated Troup School in New Haven.
• Created a Labor History workshop for teachers as a step toward developing a labor history curriculum for the public schools.
In the past ten years this organization has been striving to grow and to partner with unions throughout Connecticut to connect with their histories in order to take control of their futures. It needs your financial support in order to continue and expand the scope of its work.
Membership dues, renewable annually, are based on the size of your union local. As a member organization, your local will be entitled to a free 2 hour consultation to plan how to inventory, archive and preserve your important historical records. Many other benefits are available as well. You will also know that you, as a member organization, are making possible the preservation of a history that will otherwise be lost.
