LWAC hits the North East, Meets USAS high schoolers
October 4, 2005

USASLWAC consultants Liz O’Callahan and Mike Wilson visited the beautiful town of Northampton, Massachusetts this past weekend and presented a workshop at the United Students Against Sweatshops North East Regional High School Conference at Smith College. We got a chance to meet some amazing high schoolers well on their way to becoming amazing social justice and labor activists. These folks were incredible in their excitement and willingness to learn. We led a Living Wage 101 workshop that lasted over an hour with questions and discussion ranging from how to determine a living wage to how to tackle issues of oppression in worker solidarity organizing. We were able to do some amazing bonding, explore the wonders of Smith and Northampton, and meet some incredible people. Plus the train is fun!
