Bread & Roses is a monthly labor series featuring a variety of events focused on workers and organized labor. Each month they present a new topic through interactive discussions, film screenings, performances, etc. The hope for these events is that attendees walk away with a greater understanding of organized labor, its role in shaping history and current relevance. This monthly event takes place on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:00pm. The name "Bread & Roses" was inspired by a poem/song written by James Oppenheim that appeals for both fair wages and dignified conditions.
