In this interlude, Fred Redmond examines how the labor movement builds hope and partners with others to achieve social change.

"We have worked together with allies before and universalized our struggles before. The majority of economic and social justice achievements were not won by single-purpose activists fighting alone. They were won through solidarity and by reaching beyond walls instead of building them. Moving forward requires a united front composed of people and organizations marching in the streets hand-in-hand, even though they might not normally fi nd themselves in the same room."

We will be rolling out the individual "interludes"  over the next few months.
