A Labor Day Announcement

On September 10, Brigid O'Farrell who has taught our "sociology of work" course will give a dinner talk for the Alameda National Women's Political Caucus.

Eleanor Roosevelt: Worker Advocate 

Come to a riveting presentation about a little-known aspect of Eleanor Roosevelt. Author Brigid O'Farrell will talk about her latest book, She Was One of Us: Eleanor Roosevelt and the American Worker Eleanor was born to privilege and married to a U.S. president. But she was also a committed lifelong advocate for workers and a proud union member for 25 years. O'Farrell reveals the First Lady's deep ties to the American labor movement and their mutual struggle for human rights.
