Civil rights and labor activists in the 1960s and 1970s broke down barriers for women and workers of color in the construction industry, opening a pathway to long inaccessible jobs. Join UW Labor Archivist and Labor Archives head Conor Casey to learn how Seattle workers fought for justice on the job through the lens of the historical collections that document this history.

Assistant Labor Archivist Crystal Rodgers will introduce and contextualize her pop-up exhibit on “Women in the Trades,” which will be present at the event.

Conor Casey is the founding labor archivist of the Labor Archives of Washington, University of Washington Libraries Special Collections. Casey first became interested in labor history through researching his grandfather’s experience as a striking longshoreman during the 1934 Pacific Coast Maritime Strike.
