Help us reach our fundraising goal for

Getting to Know the REAL Bay Area

General strike
At Oceana High School in Pacifica, California, the teachers design a week of educational field trips called "Interims," that reflect the passion of the teacher designing them. Our passion is labor history.

To fund our transportation and other costs, we rely on donations from our community. That is where you and this page come in. Here is a description of our week:

This Interim will consist of five days of guided tours that will allow students to walk the same picket lines as the strikers of the 1934 West Coast General Strike--which sent shock waves through union hiring halls and corporate boardrooms around the globe. San Francisco’s waterfront was the epicenter of this labor rights battle--and many a labor martyr was created on the docks, piers, and warehouses that jut into San Francisco’s frigid bay. Many of the professors, staff, and librarians of the J. Paul Leonard Labor Archives and Research Center will be helping lead or inform these tours, and they will also be facilitating a mock labor contract negotiation session on the SFSU campus. This week will be rich in history and help connect students with the Bay Area’s righteously rebellious past.
