100 years ago, a fire raged through the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, killing 146 workers – mostly Jewish and Italian young women & teenagers – and sparking a national movement for labor rights. This program of drama, poetry and music explores the legacy of the fire, one of the worst industrial disasters in U.S. history, and the struggles for workers’ safety that continue around the world today. Presented by the Sholem Community, Arbeter Ring/Workmen’s Circle, Progressive Jewish Alliance, Yiddishkayt, and LALaborfest.
