Union advocate Stephen Lewis will display a collection of his international “Workers’ Struggles” posters in the Wotiz Gallery. Organizations in many countries use posters as a way to communicate ideas and messages to their audience. Workers everywhere struggle regularly to keep more of the value of what their work has created, to receive adequate benefits and to have good and safe working conditions. This is not easy. Many workers around the world face repression when they try to improve their work lives. This poster exhibit reflects some of the history of those struggles. For more details, please take a handout from the exhibit after September lst. The posters are from a collection of more than 6800 of Stephen Lewis. He is a long-time activist in the labor movement, and the former Treasurer of his union. Stephen has exhibited at a number of public libraries in Massachusetts and two of the state Heritage parks. He has presented at the annual conference of the National Council on Public History, and on some cable television programs. He can be reached by Email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at Facebook under labor/progressive political posters. The posters/photos were contributed by friends, collected at conferences, visits to some of the organizations, and from connections made through the internet. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Milton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and by IBEW Local 103, Roofers Local 33, and Asbestos Workers Local 6. Please come and view this interesting display during September.
