Announcing the Smith-McWilliams Endowment for Working Women's Archives

The Labor Archives of Washington and the Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies are proud to announce the establishment of a new endowment dedicated to funding the collection, preservation and accessibility of working women’s history and the history of women in the labor movement.

The fund is a result of a generous donation on the part of two long-time labor activists, Lila Smith and Brian McWilliams, who wish to increase the recognition of women as members of labor organizations; individual workers and activists; and leaders in the labor movement.

Supporters may make their own financial contributions to the fund by credit card online, or call 1-800-326- 7566.
