Celebrate the Bread & Roses Centennial!


Welcome! The year 2012 marked the centennial anniversary of the Great Lawrence Strike of 1912, popularly known as The Bread and Roses Strike. To commemorate this pivotal moment in labor history, many organizations joined to form the Bread & Roses Centennial Committee. The committee was dedicated to coordinating events, marketing and outreach to celebrate the strike that drew attention to the important issues of unequal distribution of wealth, child labor and workplace safety. This was the central website for the Committee that has since disbanded.
