Former Executive Director of the Association of Joint Labor/Management Educational Programs, New York City. Leading national voice in the field of worker education

For 20 years now, and with great success, LMWEP has explored and implemented highly innovative practices to engage and support the educational and personal growth of adult learners. These practices, ranging from ABE and creative writing to understanding the detrimental impact of classism to a worker-run weekly radio on issues of social justice, continue to inform and inspire the larger world of worker education.  LMWEP allows me and countless others to hear worker voices, read worker writings, and to see worker art.

I think the Building Bridges classes have made the biggest impact because through that experience, I got to meet new people, I got to reconnect with people I’ve known previously, and work with people I haven’t seen in a while and I just had a really positive experience overall.
