Tula Connell
I got my first union card while I worked my way through college as a banquet bartender for the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee (we were represented by a hotel and restaurant local union—the names of the national unions were different then than they are now). With a background in journalism—covering bull roping in Texas and school boards in Virginia—I started working in the labor movement in 1991. Beginning as a writer for SEIU (and OPEIU member), I now blog under the title of AFL-CIO managing editor.

Richard Negri
from UnionReview. Richard, a lifetime unionist, is a member of the web communications team for the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT). Union Review is one of the highest trafficked union blog site's.

from Joes' Union Review . Joe is a lifetime unionist, former Teamster, current UA Local 638 Steamfitter and a delegate for the NYC Central Labor Council. Joseph is also a co-administrator of UnionReview, and is active on many labor, news and social justice websites on the internet.

Now just to be clear that everyone understands what kind of workshop this is, here’s a little teaser on it:

411 on Blogging

This is a hands-on e-activism workshop. We will assist users in accessing the blogging world; starting their own blog; making comments on other blogging sites to spread their views and will focus users on the labor blogging community. We will also teach some html coding specific to blogging like adding links, embedding videos and inserting links using graphics. As a hands on event, this will be a longer workshop with a lunch break in the middle. At the end of the session, users will have created their own blogs, have user profiles in other blog sites and also be able to create simple code for their new sites.

So, if you’re in the DC area and want to know what blogging is all about, how to use blogs and e-activism to build your site or start a labor blog or even just to start a personal one, come on out and join us for the event!!
