For more than 30 years, Jerry Tucker was an inspiring figure of the labor movement. His untimely passing in October 2012 was mourned by many in the labor community and beyond. Over the years, Jerry was a rank-and-file worker, union leader and adviser, and mentor to many. This conference explores Jerry's work within the labor movement and examines the fundamental question that he wrestled with throughout his long career: How do we build a powerful social movement and exercise the collective might of the working class through true solidarity, accountability and democracy? We will discuss how to apply Jerry’s vision to today’s struggles, and we will celebrate his extraordinary life through music, videos and personal testimony.
