Labor History Research Project (LHRP)

Labor History Research Project

Preserving labor history and the stories of working people

In recent years, the nature of work and the lives of working people have been radically transformed. Labor unions no longer speak with the authority they once possessed. Our information about work and workers now is published, presented, and produced in multiple ways, and sometimes filtered such that the stories are incomplete. For students, teachers, workers, and a curious public, the Labor History Resource Project will foreground the images, words, voices, and films of workers in the past and present; identify and create materials that can inform and to enlarge our understanding of the contributions workers have made in American history.; and work with archivists, librarians, curators, and learning institutions to highlight resources vital to the story of our time. The Labor History Resource Project provides a platform for making labor history visible, and it will help to sponsor the creation of new educational resources about neglected chapters of our history. We invite you to explore the initiative and get involved.

Together we can make a difference.
