About


Who are we?
We are a collective of volunteers who met through the Tech Workers Coalition newsletter and this teach-in effort. We come with experience in labor and community organizing and have strong ties to allied social movement efforts. Our group includes workers in occupations ranging from engineering and facilities to research and support, working in tech, government, and academia. We approach organizing with care, empathy, and humor, and we see this labor as a form of mutual aid.

What’s this event?
This teach-in is a free event hosted by volunteers in the TWC newsletter crew to facilitate and support intergenerational oral history, relationship building, and strategizing among workers across the tech industry. We’re doing this because workers in tech are and have always been historical actors, but learning from history can be challenging. In a fast-paced industry, even the past few years can feel inaccessible. On October 19-21, 2022, we’re bringing together elder and younger workers in and around tech to share perspectives and learn skills for organizing, solidarity, and healing. We rely on an expansive definition of “tech worker” beyond white collar coders at major tech companies to include people in different kinds of jobs across the sector. This event is designed to offer space, time, and encouragement for workers to share personal stories, organizing strategies, and provide one another with support across generations while connecting past and present worker-led movements. By situating worker perspectives and collective actions in history, we’ll all be better equipped to face the demands of workplaces today and organize for the future.
