Bread & Roses Centennial Committee

The 100th Anniversary of the Great Lawrence Strike of 1912, popularly referred to as the Bread & Roses Strike, began in January 2012. For many years individuals and organizations met to prepare to celebrate this historically significant event. To coordinate events, marketing, and outreach these groups came together to form the Bread & Roses Centennial Committee.
