2017 LaborFest | July 1-31

LaborFest is an annual festival celebrating the history and culture of working people through film, art, lectures, and exhibits all over the Bay Area from July 1-31, 2017.

> LaborFest 2017 Schedule

The festival commemorates the 83rd anniversary of 1934’s “Bloody Thursday” when two workers were shot and killed in San Francisco for supporting the longshoremen and maritime workers strike. The incident brought about the San Francisco General Strike.

This year also marks the 80th anniversary of the 1937 sit-down strikes. LaborFest will be commemorating this with films about these struggles and the recent struggles of workers in Madison, Wisconsin against Scott Walker.

Kick the High Rent Monopoly Goodbye! | 2017 LaborFest | July 1-31

Pay a condensed version of the classic game of Monopoly with both current and the original rules, and then come up with “fair” rules and discuss the social impacts of housing rights.

At the end of the day, you can turn in your Monopoly money for prizes like massages, kayaking on the bay, and walking tours.

Also enjoy live music from a three-piece jazz band and free Mediterranean nibbles.

Play Monopoly for about 30 minutes with the familiar rules, then 30 minutes with the original rules, and then make up your own Housing Rights Advocate rules, after which turn your game money in for very cool prizes.
