Over 30 Interns from over 15 different labor organizations came together to discuss their summer experience and their work back home for the first ever event aimed at bringing together all the summer interns involved in the labor movement throughout the DC area. The reception was hosted on the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers’ (IBEW) rooftop, and was cosponsored by the Metro Washington Council (MWC) and the AFL-CIO, and organized by MWC intern Sivan Rosenthal, as part of a summer program sponsored by Rutgers University School of Management and Labor Relations as well as Dr. Coralie Farlee. The reception was planned as part of a larger effort to link young people to the history of the labor movement but more importantly its future, and to connect with each other and begin to visualize where the millennial generation is going in its support for workers’ rights.
