Join us at the Bread and Roses Heritage Festival
September 1, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We Need Volunteers on Monday, September 1 when we will set up an outreach table at Lawrence’s Bread and Roses Festival. We’ll be showing off our Nuclear Globe, asking people to sign our new petition, “Stop the Wars — Stop the Warming”, and inviting people to join us at the People’s Climate March. Can you join us for an hour or two between noon and 5pm on Labor Day? Contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-354-2169 to sign up! We will arrange carpools or take the MBTA commuter rail from North Station departing at 11:30 am.
It is a *FREE, *open air, labor and social justice event, on the Lawrence Common, from noon to 5:00 PM
Enjoy an electric day of musical, dance, and theatrical performances from a diverse range of cultures from American Folk, Salsa, Blues, Celtic, Hip Hop, and more!
Hungry? Stroll down the walkway of food vendors to choose BBQ, Dominican, Turkish, Vietnamese, Mexican, and other international treats!
Have Children? The Kidz Zone will surely put a smile on children young and old! With pony rides, face painting, hula hooping, a juggler, and even story telling!
Social justice? Our row of information vendors brings together community groups and non-profits from around the area to have discussions with visitors on the many issues we face, provide resources for those who need help, and opportunities for those wanting to get involved further.
Like to learn? Lawrence History Live and the workshop tents are the spot for you. Not only will you get historical mentions and reenactments on the main stage, but these tents provide a deeper look into past events, such as the Bread & Roses Strike of 1912, immigration history of the area, present day labor and social efforts, as well as introductory classes on traditional and new organizing models.
