The theme of this year's conference is Honoring Our Past and Protecting Our Future.

History tells us where we’ve been. And it shows us the path for moving forward.

We will build on our victories and strategize about the continued fight for economic and racial justice with—and also within—the labor movement.

This conference will challenge us to look to the future. To ask and answer how we can build a multiracial, progressive labor movement reflective of America’s changing workforce.

Sessions and trainings will be held online so everyone can attend safely.
