2019 LaborFest | July 2-31

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 2-31, 2019.

This year’s theme, Labor on the edge: Dystopia or a future for workers.

LaborFest this year celebrates the 85th anniversary of the San Francisco General Strike. The 1934 General Strike transformed San Francisco and the Bay Area into a strong union center in the United States. It also allowed hundreds of thousands of workers to join unions because of the collective power of the working people.

Today, for the first time in decades, some union leaders, including the CWA AFA president Sarah Nelson, are calling for another general strike against the attacks on Federal workers and the entire working class.

This has also become the year of the teacher. Working people are on the move. For the first time in US history, hundreds of thousands of teachers, including in Oakland and Los Angeles, have been in the streets fighting for their rights and their students for a decent public education.

Working people are also organizing in San Francisco, including Anchor Steam workers, healthcare workers, and the VCA veterinarian workers. The need for unions is greater than ever, and despite efforts to stop workers from organizing, workers continue to join unions.

Artist Reception | 2019 LaborFest | July 2-31

The SF First Unitarian Universalist Church presents art by artists who are union members. The show highlights the fact that some union members are also accomplished artists. Two-dimensional art in various media will be presented.

The artists reception will be from noon to 2 pm on July 20, 2014.

Several artworks chosen for Extraction will be shown at this venue. This is an opportunity to see the exceptional talents of labor artists and artists dedicated to environmental issues and labor. In both cases, the artist speaks eloquently to us through their aesthetic pursuit. Artists include Attila Cziglenyi, Marcia Poole, Diego Marcial Rios and others.
