VANCOUVER — Workers from across southwest Washington gathered for a day of workshops, discussions, and collective action on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the “Working People’s Summit: Proud to Be Union” at Clark College in Vancouver. Attendees heard about successful organizing campaigns in the region, new member outreach, coalition building, communications, turning an issue into a campaign, race and labor, telling our stories, and more.

Here are some scenes from the event.
