The Seattle GMB is proud to host the 2019 IWW Organizing Summit.

The purpose of the Organizing Summit is to bring together IWW campaign members and organizers to share and reflect on past and current organizing, create tools to disseminate in the union to help members in their organizing, teach and support each other to be better organizers and how to think strategically.
