> I'm writing to invite you to an upcoming teach-in, over a year in the making!
> On Oct. 19–21, a group of volunteers in the Tech Workers Coalition are hosting our first intergenerational tech and labor teach-in. It's a mix of roundtable discussions and skillshares, most featuring elders who have organized many decades ago, including members of IBM Black Workers Alliance <https://news.techworkerscoalition.org/2021/06/19/issue-13/>, Computer People for Peace <https://theoutline.com/post/4029/computer-people-for-peace-history>, Polaroid workers against apartheid <https://www.wgbh.org/news/local-news/2019/06/30/polaroid-worker-who-protested-companys-ties-to-apartheid-south-africa-reflects-on-wayfair-walkout>, The Lucas Plan <http://lucasplan.org.uk/story-of-the-lucas-plan/>, and workers organizing at National Semiconductor <https://truthout.org/articles/up-against-the-open-shop-the-hidden-story-of-silicon-valley-s-high-tech-workers-2/>. This event is for people working in and around tech. It is free of charge, and we've set up a mutual aid fund <https://opencollective.com/twc-teachin> for those who need financial assistance to take time off to attend – and for people with ability to contribute to help fellow workers. We’re recommending people form small groups with friends and coworkers to attend the whole event or specific sessions. We'll have a pre-event gathering and opportunities to talk 1-on-1 with organizers beforehand, too.
