A week after Labor Day, this powerful one hour documentary reminds us how we got here. It covers three decades of labor strife in the Pacific Northwest at the turn of the 20th century and reveals the plight of the 65,000 working class men and women who fought for dignity through better wages, reasonable hours, and workplace safety that we now tend to take for granted.

This event is free to the public. Donations are greatly appreciated to help cover costs.

Special Guests: We are honored to have David Jespen lead us in a post-film discussion.

Sponsors: Beacon Arts; Joe and Jill McKinstry; Bar del Corso; and 4Culture
