Bozeman DSA will provide snacks and free childcare in a room adjacent to the speaking area for attendees.

Kevin Martin will appear in Bozeman on May 30 to dialogue with the community about how individuals and small groups can best act to oppose the US military intervention in other countries, particularly those in the news today: Yemen, Venezuela, and Iran.

Kevin Martin has traveled abroad representing Peace Action and the U.S. peace movement on delegations and at conferences in Russia, Japan, China, Mexico and Britain.

Kevin’s writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Nation, Los Angeles Times, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Village Voice, The Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, The Progressive, Z magazine and many other publications. He has appeared on CNN, National Public Radio, Fox News, MSNBC, BBC-TV and radio, and many other local, national and international radio and television outlets.

Kevin Martin is President of Peace Action and the Peace Action Education Fund and joined the staff on Sept 4, 2001. Kevin previously served as Director of Project Abolition, a national organizing effort for nuclear disarmament, from August 1999 through August 2001.

Kevin came to Project Abolition after ten years in Chicago as Executive Director of Illinois Peace Action. Prior to his decade-long stint in Chicago, Kevin directed the community outreach canvass for Peace Action (then called Sane/Freeze) in Washington, D.C., where he originally started as a door-to-door canvasser with the organization in 1985.

Labor 101 Workshop

labor 101

Workers that belong to unions (or workplaces that are represented by a union) on average have 27% higher wages than nonunion workplaces. Sometimes it’s not just higher wages workers want, it’s better working conditions, more defined work leave, or benefits like healthcare?

However, with all of the benefits of being in a union, membership has seen a steady decline since the 1980s. In 2018, 11.6% of the American workforce and just 6.4% of private sector workers belonged to a union. Why?

We are proud to welcome a Mark Anderlik, a union organizer with more than 35 years of experience. The workshop will focus on answering commonly held questions like:

  • What are the benefits of a being in a union?
  • What can a union do for you?
  • What are the different types of unions?
  • I don’t work in a trade, what are my options?
  • …and many more.

Snacks and childcare will be provided.

Saturday, May 11
1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
325 N. 25th Ave.

Bozeman DSA Zine, Spring 2019

On March 1st, Bozeman DSA held a zine making workshop at Zocalo Coffee House. We asked members of the community to share their experience as working class people in a collaborative project. This zine showcases the writing, drawing, painting, and collage from that workshop.

Below are two versions of the zine – an online readable version and a booklet-fold version for printing.
