About this event

LRAN 2021 Conference: “What Did Workers Teach Us in 2020?”

If 2020 has shown us anything, it is that workers’ fight for dignity and respect on and off the job is as important, and resilient, as ever. In so many ways, the last year brought to the fore the widespread and deep inequality, systemic racism, and anti-worker policies that have plagued the U.S. for decades. Meanwhile, the movement has long been preparing for this moment of opportunity for meaningful change in the wake of 2020’s upheaval. There will be no going “back to normal” in 2021 and at this year’s LRAN conference, we hope to encourage discussion, sharing, and strategizing that embraces a more just future by honoring what workers have taught us in this past tumultuous and often tragic year.

RWDSU President Stuart Appelbaum and worker leaders from the Bessemer, AL Amazon campaign will keynote the conference. LRAN invites participants from universities, unions, worker centers, policy organizations, and others involved in the work of labor justice to join us for workshops covering topics like crisis capitalism/crisis unionism, alternative organizing methods in the pandemic, lessons learned from the recent uprisings for racial justice, mutual aid and community-centered organizing, and redefining worker safety.
