The Education Committee of the Rochester Labor Council sponsors public events to educate both our members and the wider community about the role and concerns of organized labor.

These include:


  • The annual Labor Film Series, a series of labor-themed movies cosponsored by the Council and the George Eastman House and screened at the Dryden Theatre. Since 1989 the series has screened over 200 films, each introduced by GEH staff, someone from the labor community, or an individual connected with the film’s production. See the Film Series Schedule for dates of the upcoming Fall Series.

  • A Labor Lyceum program, an occasional public forum on current topics of vital interest to union members and the progressive community. These free programs feature both guest speakers and discussion among those in attendance.

  • Special Events such as workshops, conferences, seminars, exhibits and concerts are held from time to time. In the past these have included our photo-text exhibit, "Rochester: A Community of Workers;" conferences on teaching work; Labor Film Special Events; our 2014 public hearing on low-wage work; etc.

  • An annul Labor Day Parade is sponsored by the Council’s Parade Committee
