lhflogocolor60The Labor Heritage Foundation works to preserve and promote knowledge of the cultural heritage of the American worker through the arts, including music, poetry, written works, theatre, and artistic works; and conducts historical research through written and oral histories. Their mission is to strengthen the labor movement through the use of music and arts.

LHF maintains a network of activists, artists, and leaders, who perform, speak on relevant issues, provide trainings, and/or produce materials useful for the promotion of the history, culture, and importance of the American Labor movement and its current progressive activities and historical accomplishments.

The Labor Heritage Foundation has lots of films, posters, and books on labor that are useful for the classroom.
