PNLHA brings a history of struggle for labor and human rights to the forefront. For more than 50 years, it has explored regional, national and international issues, and used music, drama, re-enactments, talks and papers to highlight labor history. In this era of economic inequality and right-wing attacks, we need to remember the struggles of working people and unions to try to make the world a better place.
