The October 14 Jobs with Justice planning session finds North Texas workers at several crossroads, by the edge of a cliff, and between rocks and hard places.
For some months, we have been discussing economic fightback, building a coalition of construction workers, organizing immigrants, training organizers, and creating a Workers Center. We need to put our plans into a readable document that can be used in a serious drive for implementation! That's going to take the best efforts of a number of volunteers.
I've begun to bring video into our arsenal of information spreading. When Phyllis Guest joined me on the "Workers Beat" program on KNON today, I made a tiny promotional video and put it on YouTube. Check it out! We can do a lot of this type of thing. On Monday, Oct 19, Dr Joerg Rieger will join me to talk about his new book and the 'Faith and Reason' seminar that weekend.
