New campaign: American Federation of Labor (A.F.L.)

Volunteers can transcribe selections from the American Federation of Labor (A.F.L) Records held at the Library of Congress! The selections highlight some key labor events of the 20th century: the International Ladies Garment Workers Union Strike, the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, and Red Summer. A.F.L. Records provide a window into the political issues and trends driving the Progressive Era (1890-1920), nationally and internationally. Help enhance Library collections while learning about the labor issues animating small towns such as Denton, Texas and Parsons, Kansas as well as booming metropolises across the US, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia.
