Re: [CACP-07] Re: Triangle Tragedy at 100 & Worker Rights - NEXT Thursday
I take it the address on both downloadable flyers should be corrected to read: 7521 N. Damen.
I will note for later.

Thanks for sending Laurel. We unfortunately made an error on the info of where to send checks, the address should be 7521 N Damen. Somehow all our proofreaders missed it.

Hi All. Forgive me if my former email made you think this event was for today.
The Fire That Changed America:
The Triangle Tragedy at 100 and the Importance of Worker Rights
DATE: Thursday, April 7, 2011.
TIME: 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
LOCATION: Roosevelt University's Gage Gallery, 18 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago
Join us for a free program featuring a presentation by Professor Jo Ann Argersinger of Southern Illinois University. Her book, The Triangle Fire, tells the story of the March 25, 1911 fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City. The fire took the lives of 146 mostly Jewish and Italian immigrant women. These garment workers, largely teenagers, were unable to escape because of locked exit doors and other inadequate safety protections. Many died jumping from high floors to the pavement below. Public outrage and grief over this horrific and preventable tragedy led to new work and safety legislation, rules and regulations throughout the country. The Triangle Fire was a defining moment in U.S. history that led to social reform and a robust labor movement.
- Professor Jo Ann Argersinger: Speaking on the history and significance of the Fire;
- Poetry Reading;
- Rima Lunin Schultz of Chicago Area Women’s History Council: Speaking on "The View From Chicago: Women Against Sweatshops in Era of Triangle Fire;"
- Panel Discussion with workers on the job and a question and answer period.
