We here at LHF are so excited to share our new website with you. It was our intention to create a space that is informative and engaging. We wanted our virtual space to clearly show our appreciation of the past and how it helped shape the present and most importantly, how it will direct our future here at LHF. We are as committed as ever in our mission. We have a driven purpose to preserve and promote knowledge of the cultural heritage of the American worker through the arts, including music, poetry, written works, theatre, and artistic works.
It is our deepest desire to strengthen the labor movement through the use of music and arts–Using creative organizing methods, artistic opportunities, and cultural activities we are the “synergy, heart, and soul” that brings the passion for equality, fair labor standards and practices, and a just society together in the labor movement.
In part, union is defined as a joining, uniting, or a unification. It is in this spirit that we would love to hear from you. Let us know what you expect from the Labor Heritage Foundation. This is a journey that requires us all to engage, enlighten and inspire.
Let us hear your voice.
In the next weeks and months we will be tweaking our site to make it the best we can. Please visit often and remember, if you have a story about a local event using the arts to further the labor movement that you feel we should know about, drop us a note; if you attended an event filled with labor arts and spirit we would love for you to share your experience; if you have photos all the better!
You can send your stories and experiences to us via this link. Here’s my story!
