What do workers today need to learn from elders to guide future organizing?
Workers in tech are and have always been historical actors, but learning from history in a fast-paced industry is challenging – even the past few years can feel inaccessible. We hope to change that with this first intergenerational teach-in event. On October 19-21, we’re bringing together elder and younger workers in and around tech to share perspectives and learn skills for organizing, solidarity, and healing. By situating worker perspectives and collective actions in history, we’ll all be better equipped to face the demands of today’s workplaces and organize for the future ahead.
What is it?
This teach-in is an intergenerational learning event. It consists of sessions including oral history, skillshare and training, games, connections among workers, and more. We hope this will be the first of many events.
Who is it for?
This event is for elder and younger workers in and around tech, as well as allies in labor and community organizations.
When and where is it?
The teach-in takes place over 2.5 days, Wednesday, October 19 at 9am PST to Friday, October 21 at 12pm. We’re hosting the event online via Zoom.
