International labor convention coming to Raleigh (9/24)
Registration still open for the ILCA’s 60th Annual Convention
The International Labor Communications Association (ilcaonline.org) will bring its 60th Annual Convention to Raleigh, featuring dynamite presenters including AFL-CIO Executive VP Tefere Gebre and leader of the Forward Together Movement, North Carolina’s own, Rev. William Barber!
What: ILCA Convention and opening session
When: Thursday, September 24 beginning at 1:00 PM
Where: Sheraton Downtown Raleigh, 421 S. Salisbury St.
State AFL-CIO secretary-treasurer MaryBe McMillan will be speaking when the convention convenes at 1:00 PM Thursday.
Immediately following MaryBe’s welcome, we’ve got the opening panel – entitled Cackalacky Case Study in Organizing the South – featuring Working America, Raise Up, FLOC, the Beloved Community Center, and the Institute for Southern Studies and moderated by the NC Justice Center.
We’ve negotiated a special discount rate for local NC activists who won’t want to miss this exciting convention. Learn more and sign up at http://bit.ly/ilcanc2015.
It would be great to have more local folks to sign up for this to make a good showing of NC activists and advocates. Click here to register.
