Summer School 2019


As a result of the recent federal government upheaval, millennials are becoming activists, teachers are influencing politicians to fund public schools, and Oregon unions are overcoming right to work proponents’ prediction of organized labor’s demise. We are ready to cultivate an intergenerational labor movement for years to come!
