Reach Out With Labor!

It is not too late to get Labor Day Breakfast advanced tickets for your family and friends. We will gather in the historic Longhorn Ballroom to learn labor's perspectives from one of the most dynamic leaders of one of the most dynamic unions in America, newly elected International President Claude Cummings of the Communications Workers of America. 

CWA International President Claude Cummings

We will be fraternizing with North Texas leaders of the striking Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) and getting a message from the President of the National AFL-CIO, Liz Shuler. $35 individual tickets can be paid for by check to "Dallas AFL-CIO," 1408 N Washington#240, Dallas Texas 75204 or by using our Paypal account at

Please cut and paste the link into your own emails.

It is not too late to get tickets, but the brochure had to go to the printers last week. According to the artist and organizer Jason Tomlinson,, it is by far the largest brochure we have ever printed with 44 pages of labor supporters! Activists will want to keep this year's brochure because it is a virtual "Who's Who" of progressive Texas political leaders. 

Reach Out!

The Labor Day Breakfast is our focus, but North Texas activists are also reaching out to  faith organizations and community groups. We already have a record number of speakers making presentations between now and the week after September 4. The AFL-CIO’s “Labor in the Pulpit” program asks us to talk about labor, even if only 3-5 minutes, in our church, mosque, or synagogue, let me know.

American labor is changing fast, and no one explains it better than our activists -- especially those from the Young Active Labor Leaders (YALL).

Please join the Dallas AFL-CIO Solidarity Brigade
