In this episode, we talk to Adrienne, a teacher in Michigan, single mother of three, and a grievance officer in her local union. We talk about many facets of Adrienne's remarkable life, including growing up in cooperative housing in Lansing, and the the tragic death of her brother, Jamie, which shaped Adrienne's decision to become a teacher. We talk about her union work and about the fight for social and economic justice in the workplace and beyond. (All music sourced from the Free Music archive)
In These Times is funded entirely by readers like you, but through the first half of 2021, reader donations are down 20% compared to last year. If that continues, it could spell real trouble for In These Times. We’re running a short fundraising drive (from now until July 31) to get things back on track. Will you chip in?
