Labor Research Action Network Conference

The Network's third national conference in Washington, D.C.
Monday, June 3, 2013

The Worker Institute at Cornell is proud to co-sponsor the Labor Research Action Network's third national conference this year in Washington, D.C. This will be an opportunity for labor leaders, academics, activists, scholars, and students to exchange fresh ideas and new ways of thinking about the labor movement.

Come to connect with other practitioners who are employing innovative organizing, strategic research, and advocacy strategies in the struggle for workers' rights. The conference will focus on organizing campaigns (broadly defined, not limited to union initiatives) that are either informed by cutting-edge research or raise challenging questions researchers should explore further. Presenters will also put forward new research that sheds light on critical organizing issues.


Date: June 18-19, 2013
Location: Georgetown University Law Center: 600 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington D.C.
