Southern Women Rise!

Working women of the South have a fabulous opportunity at their fingertips... the Southern School for Union Women!

Join union women from all over the South for four days of training and networking. Women representing a variety of unions, jobs, and backgrounds come together to develop organizing and leadership skills and to be energized and inspired for their work in the labor movement. Participants attend two workshops over four days, as well as general sessions on current economic, political, and legislative issues affecting unions and workers. Instructors and speakers are university labor educators and union staff members. ... Change your workplace and your life! Go to Hot Springs... Tell 'em I sent ya! In sisterhood and solidarity...

Rest Well, Sister Ruth

Ruth McKay Obit

Longtime peace activist Ruth McKay left this world on June 5th, following a brief illness. She was surrounded by friends, who, according to the obituary, sang "Have You Been to Jail for Justice?" for her. You can read about her inspiring life by clicking on the link above. Thanks to Arnie Alpert for sending this to me.
