LEARN (Labor Education Action Research Network) is pleased to announce its 2018-2019 Labor-Community Film Series.

You are invited to join friends from the New Jersey labor movement, Rutgers, and the broader community on the first Thursday of each month during the fall and spring semester for a series of film screenings and lively discussions on some of the most pressing issues facing workers and New Jersey residents.

From low-wage work to racial justice, gender equity, and climate change, the LEARN film series will investigate some of the most pressing issues of our time.

More importantly, it will create a space for community discussions about ways we can come together as workers, students, community members, and friends to collectively solve some of these problems and in so doing improve the working conditions and lives of all New Jerseyans.

The series will open on Thursday, October 4 with the screening of The Care Revolution, an inspiring story of home health care organizing in the state of Oregon. Pre-film reception from 4:30 followed by screening and discussion with film producer, Bob Bussel, from 5:00-6:30 at the Rutgers Labor Education Center, 50 Labor Center Way, New Brunswick, NJ.

Other films under consideration include:

"American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs"

Bisbee ‘17

"Eight Men Out"

"From the Ashes"

"Heather Booth: Changing the World"

"Prairie Trilogy"

"Sorry to Bother You"
