DONATE to the IWW JUNIOR WOBBLIES CAMP--a unique summer program for the children of union members!

Running concurrently with the IWW WORK PEOPLES COLLEGE near Hibbing, Minnesota, the Junior Wobblies Camp offers working class youth from across North America an opportunity to explore and create adventures in the woods and lake at Mesaba Park Co-Op while learning about concepts related to capitalism and organizing through a wide array of activities including CRAFTS, THEATRE, AND MUSIC.  This is a FAMILY camp where Junior Wobblies participate in dedicated youth oriented projects during the day, and mix with their parents and working class adult role models during the early evenings and during meals.

In order to provide this amazing opportunity for children, we need to rent a park, event insurance, organize and prepare three meals a day (plus snacks!) for the duration, and arrange transport, housing, etc. Plus, of course, we want to spend all the time there doing Junior Wobbly activities! It’s a lot of work, but we’re excited, and have lots of wonderful things planned. The Junior Wobblies Camp is run by ALL VOLUNTEERS so all donations go directly to the WPC and JRWU Camp.

PLEASE DONATE to make our project a reality. As a revolutionary union that takes family and organizing seriously, we aim to cultivate the Junior Wobblies as future unionists, defenders of our class. Big donations are great, but any amount will help. Donations of $25 or more receive an original graffiti street art inspired IWW BUTTON.

THANK YOU for supporting the next generation of class struggle organizers in the ONE BIG UNION!
