Description

The Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies is pleased to announce and celebrate the release of the student project “Capacity Constrained Morality: A Brief History of Community Resistance and Labor Activism at the University of Washington.” We hope you will join us Friday November 22nd to celebrate the official release of the zine, and grab a copy of your own! Mingle with the authors, as well as other students and staff over food and light refreshments. All are welcome to this open event!

A PDF of the zine is available to download on the Bridges Center website.

Overview:

Researched and compiled by undergraduates, “Capacity Constrained Morality” overviews the rich history of activism and collective struggle at the UW, as a counter-narrative to the University’s “facade of progress and diversity.” The zine begins with a message to students and workers: that their labor matters -- not only matters, but has been the defining force for change throughout the University’s history.  As students, workers, and community members continue the legacy of activism and resistance today, we hope this zine can be a resource in strengthening the movement, sharing knowledge and strategy, and continuing the dialogue between workers and students.

Accessibility Information:
