  • The Joe Hill Award

    Posted January 11, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    The Joe Hill Award honors leaders and artists who have contributed to the successful integration of arts and culture in the labor movement. Every year at the Great Labor Arts Exchange, the Labor Heritage Foundation gives the award to individuals based on their dedication, participation, and promotion of labor, labor arts, culture, organizing, and/or history.

    The Labor Heritage Foundation has presented this annual lifetime achievement award for work in the field of labor culture since 1989.
