Sisters and Brothers,
At present I am hard at work planning a NYC event which should be of great interest to NY unionists. I am hoping to spread the word now to ask Labor activists who are part of an organization or independent political party to consider arranging for tabling. As this event has networking as an underlying message, I am hopeful that many groups would be interested in setting up tables to offer their brochures, books, video tapes, etc to our audience. Tabling will cost each organization just $10. Please contact me on this as soon as possible…
