ASC Releases Finding Aids to Labor Activist Organizations

The Archives Service Center released finding aids to two labor activist organizations. Environmentalists for Full Employment formed in 1975 to demonstrate that environmentalists and organized labor share common concerns and need to work together to address these issues. This collection includes research files regarding environmental and labor issues, such as occupational hazards, pollution, and clean energy. The Alliance for Progressive Action was formed during the spring of 1991 as a coalition of labor and grass roots organizations in Pittsburgh, Pa., that was involved in labor, environmental, social, political and civil rights issues.
