The Harry Bridges Project Edit Name
Organization joined Wed, Jun 06, 2012 at 04:44AM UTC
The project is dedicated to introducing the public to the life and ideas of Harry Bridges and his impact on our lives today. Bridges was an extraordinary labor leader and social visionary whose life and work encompassed all of the important issues and events of his day, including immigration, depression-era policies, red-scares, McCarthyism, the cold-war and labor issues. His story provides a springboard into understanding these times and realizing their significance today, as we face parallel issues of globalization, the growing gap between rich and poor, increasing governmental surveillance and the war on terror. His life inspires people to come together in their communities, discover their own history and take charge of their own lives by engaging in dialogue and debate about these issues in order to move beyond the fears and limitations they can create.
