the genocidal actions of the Pilgrims and to raise the ongoing struggle of native peoples to maintain their lands,
language and culture.

union members, Black Lives Matter activists, LGBTQ groups and other communities fighting for justice.

national and international scene.

The Labor Forum on WRFG 89.3FM hears from graduate students at Emory University about the issues that have
caused them to organize for union recognition. Courtney Kaye Rawlings will join us to talk about this struggle of graduate student workers who teach a large number of the classes at universities across the country. A union victory was just gained at the University of Chicago, no doubt an encouraging message to the Emory students.
Courtney will be providing information about a Nov. 20 rally at Emory. This interview will be from 4:15-4:30pm.
The organizer of “Teach the Truth,” will be calling in from Los Angeles, Ca. at 4:30pm. Nolan Hack is spearheading an effort to
bring awareness to students and the community about the history of the persons for whom public schools are named. Often times,
it is someone whose fame is rooted in exploitative or repressive actions against people of color, in particular.
Nolan will tell us about the launch of this campaign on Nov. 17.
The Labor Forum airs every Monday from 4-5pm on 89.3FM. For more information, please see wrfglaborforum.org
