“Honoring Our Past, Creating Our Future”

PNLHA postcard US Final Draft

You are invited to the Pacific Northwest Labor History Association’s Annual Conference and 50th Anniversary celebration!  Our conference will be April 6 – 8, 2018 at the Hilton Seattle Airport & Conference Center in SeaTac, WA.

Registration includes a Friday night social and movie co-sponsored with the United Association of Labor Educators (UALE). This year’s conference promises to be one of our best.  We have two dynamic keynote speakers in Bill Fletcher Jr. and Kent Wong.  Saturday evening we have our Annual Awards Banquet where we honor our own who are making labor history today.  The featured speaker will be Nikkita Oliver, organizer, educator, teaching-artist, social justice activist.

We have sixteen excellent workshops as well as three movies: we are collaborating with UALE in premiering the new film 9to5/925 Legacy which looks at the 40 year history of the National Association of Working Women and its sister union, SEIU 925 based in Seattle; Witness to Revolution on the 1919 Seattle General Strike; and the just-released Verona which explores the events surrounding the Everett Massacre.

The PNLHA brings a history of struggle for labor and human rights to the forefront of our consciousness.  For fifty years, we have explored regional, national, and international issues, and used music, drama and re-enactments, talks and papers to highlight labor history.  In this era of disaster capitalism, we especially need to remember what working people and unions have done, and need to do, to make the world a better place.
