The Labor Forum, WRFG 89.3FM examines the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement in the year since the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri with local activist, Mary Hooks of Southerners on New Ground (SONG).
In particular, the Labor Forum team is interested in the connection between the struggle against racism and white supremacy and the low-wage worker campaign for $15 an hour and a union. What are the challenges facing working class youth who are leading these struggles and what role should the organized labor movement take?
Please tune in on Monday, August 10 from 4-5pm to 89.3FM, online at www.wrfg.org or on the WRFG mobile app. The Labor Forum is also live video streamed on its YouTube channel.
