Announcement :: Labor
Who were the Knights of Labor?
03 Sep 2019
Join us to learn what they did and how we can benefit from their ideas and activities in today's working world!
The Knights of Labor, founded in 1869, was once the mainstream of organized labor in the U.S. By 1886 it had between 700,000 and a million members and engaged in significant acts of class struggle.

The Knights proclaimed a vision of a cooperative society and proposed to create bonds of solidarity embracing all workers regardless of race, sex, nationality, religion, occupation, or skill level.

Largely written out of history the Knights have much to teach us about class-wide solidarity and alternatives to exploitative capitalism.
