    Detroit: A History of Struggle, A Vision of the Future.

    As the world economy slips further into depression and the forces of capital continue to wage a brutal war on the working class, it is important to inform our present course with a look at the past. Central to the development of working class solidarity is understanding the importance of black and other minority workers in the formation of class consciousness and political action. With this in mind, the Portland branch of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) will be hosting a lecture and forum on the 20th of October 2011 at Portland State University, Smith Building Room 296, starting at 7pm. This event will be part of a greater North West tour by activist and speaker Darryl Mitchell, a former organizer for the League of Revolutionary Black Workers (LRBW)*Event information is listed below*

    Our invitation
    We would like to invite you to be a co-sponsor for this event. As a cosponsor of the forum you would be asked to publicize the event to your members and the community. You will also be able to distribute materials about your organization at the event and your organization will be listed as a co-sponsor in all event materials. Monetary contributions are highly encouraged to cover the travel costs of the speaker! Also, help us network with other groups you think might be interested in attending. ***This is not a profit motivated event or tour. The event will be free of charge and Darryl is doing this for a cause, not money.***
