On April 3, 2013 LIFT Fund brought together 50 grantees, labor partners, and philanthropic interests for a day long retreat focused on deepening a shared sense of collaboration and innovation. The convening was anchored by two panel discussions. The first panel focused on the changing economy and the impacts of workers with particular attention paid to women workers and workers in low-wage jobs. The second panel focused on collaboration in the changing labor movement, looking at the challenges and opportunities in working across traditional labor and the emerging worker center sector. The convening was hosted by the Workers Defense Project and looked specifically at the collaboration and innovation of that organization with the trade unions as a model of pushing the boundaries of what is typically considered labor organizing. The National Taxi Workers Alliance also provided a case study on their organizing model that is pushing the edges of scale that often limit worker organizing outside of labor unions.
