Ken Riley, International Longshoremens Association, Local 1422, Charleston, SC says:
At the 2001 Labor Notes Conference I was able to tell everyone about the Charleston 5. It was the place to meet activists from across the country who would take the news about our struggle back home to their workplaces and communities. I look forward to coming back this September. . .
