Before there was a #MuslimBan...

Several hundred Chinese Americans who called Seattle home were forced out, hauled away, and shipped out in 1886. Is history now repeating itself?

Before Seattle's Hip Hop and Grunge...

Seattle’s music scene was brought to life by the sounds of jazz artists like Leon Hutchinson, John Slocum, Glover Compton, and Frank Waldron on Jackson Street. What music scene will emerge next?

Before recent calls of a General Strike...

110 local unions, uniting diverse working groups, participated in a walkout to support shipyard workers after World War 1. With even greater threats to working people, can we do it again?

Seattle's Working Class community...

brought and continues to bring the city to life!
Celebrate with Us!

JACKSON STREET WORKERS MURAL

A Celebration of Workers and Our Community

Three years in the making, the Jackson Street Workers Mural Project began with an intention – Celebrate and hold up Seattle’s working class. Seventy two panels wide, the mural is a gift to the WSLC’s neighbors; telling labor history through the lens of our communities frequently marginalized and ignored. On April 30th the mural will be unveiled, and you are invited.
