Raising Expectations (and Raising Hell) – A Talk By Labour Organizer Jane McAlevey

mcaleveybookOn February 25 the Greater Toronto Workers’ Assembly hosted a talk by labour organizer and author Jane McAlevey. In her recent book, Raising Expectations (and Raising Hell), McAlevey describes her experiences in the labour movement organizing bold, large scale campaigns in right to work Nevada and elsewhere in the US, drawing lessons about the potential for rebuilding the labour movement into a movement that can win.

McAlevey’s experiences organizing in the student, environmental justice and union movement reflect her central belief that meaningful change can only come with ”whole-worker organizing” that puts ordinary people at the centre of their own struggle, in their workplaces and in their communities.
