Social Unionism in Action
A Union of Immigrants—A Union of Activists
The ILGWU has been throughout its history a union of immigrants and a union of activists, and these facts are not unrelated. Programs of assistance and counseling for immigrants, advocating immigrant rights through lobbying in Congress and the state legislatures, conducting classes designed to enable immigrants to cope with the problems posed by living in a new environment are just a few examples. It is against this background that we present a selection of images evoking a small part of this rich history.
