PAST EVENTS

The Peter Kwong Immigrant Workers Learning Center brings working people together so that they can learn from one another through their organizing experiences with the intention of creating greater clarity of direction to push our organizing work. The goal of the learning center is to liberate the thinking of working people and to create a space where we can identify our struggles and build strategies to move our work beyond mere survival.  

The following are questions discussed in the Learning Center, with a sum-up of conclusions drawn.
