LNS is empowering a rising generation of young workers to lead the labor-climate movement into the future. This fall, LNS convened an inaugural Young Workers Convergence that brought together nearly 100 young workers from 23 states (as well as DC and Canada) and more than 50 different worker and environmental organizations to participate in workshops, hear from our union comrades who have successfully built labor power in service of climate justice, share strategies across states and sectors, and build a collective vision for a climate justice movement led by and for workers. This event ignited an emergent network of young union, climate, and community organizers who are bringing new energy and focus to the climate justice movement. In the coming year, we will grow and support this critical cohort with training, strategy support, and regional convenings across the country.
