Friday, January 13
7:00pm – 9:00pm at Cider Riot
(807 NE Couch St, Portland, OR)
For the last 20 years the Portland IWW has been a consistent and innovative organization at the forefront of militant labor organizing in our region. Hundreds of people have been involved in our union throughout this time, many are still active today, and others are just getting started. It’s time to celebrate this legacy, in a time when unions are needed more than ever.
This event will be an opportunity to meet up with old comrades, and learn more about what the IWW is up to today. Our friends at Cider Riot!, Portland’s newest cider bar, will be hosting us in the cidery. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to mingle, share stories, and view a slideshow of years past. The event is all-ages, and open to all friends, family, and fellow workers from near and far. Our Junior Wobblies coordinators will be on hand to provide kids activities on site!
There is a suggested donation of $5-$10 to help fundraise for the Union Benefits program of the Burgerville Workers Union, an IWW organizing campaign. There’ll be pizza on hand too, courtesy of Scottie’s Pizza. Be sure to RSVP with this link to secure your slice!
