The 2018 Labor Research and Action Network (LRAN) national conference will be held Thursday, May 31st and Friday, June 1st at Vanderbilt University. Scholars, labor practitioners, and activists from across the country will convene in Nashville, TN to share new ideas and lessons learned, and connect around research and campaign work. We hope this conference is an opportunity to develop an offensive strategy in the changed political climate nationwide, and to learn from the unique challenges faced by organizers and researchers in the South and in right to work states, including from active campaigns in the Nashville area.

LRAN invites those interested to submit ideas that fit within at least one of the following tracks. We encourage proposals that illustrate the role of research in illuminating these issues and informing campaigns. We also encourage a range of speakers, including those directly impacted by the issues raised in the tracks. A wide range of formats is accepted, including panels, workshops, training’s, film showings and strategy sessions. Chokwe Antar Lumumba has been confirmed as the keynote speaker for the conference. You don't want to miss this!!!

Workshop submissions are due by Friday March 16th.
Proposals are being collected through this form:
