Labor in the Pulpit/ on the Bimah/ in the Minbar 2011

This Labor Day, ICWJ invites you to celebrate the sacred link between faith and labor by inviting a public sector worker or labor leader to be a guest speaker.

Each Labor Day weekend, religious congregations across the country host union members and labor leaders to reflect on faith, work, justice, and the meaning of Labor Day.  This year congregations in Wisconsin will:

  • Celebrate the newly revitalized labor movement
  • Reflect on the loss of workers rights for most public sector workers
  • Re-energize our communities for the continued fight for justice
  • Commit to working for a stable and just economy for all

All faith traditions strongly support justice for workers and share these values with worker advocates, worker centers and unions.

Please join us this Labor Day to bear witness to the power of Wisconsin workers during this historical struggle for worker justice.
