Description
With a commitment to "fighting racism, sexism, class and oppression within our own movement and this society," the Lesbian Schoolworkers organized in 1977 to defeat the Briggs Initiatives. Their records consist of an organizational history, principles of unity and structure, press releases, leaflets, newsletters, and photographs. The records also contain the drafts and final script for the slideshow, "Don't Let It Happen Here," produced by the Schoolworkers to inform people of the dangers of the Briggs Initiatives.
Background
With a commitment to "fighting racism, sexism, class and oppression within our own movement and this society," the Lesbian Schoolworkers organized in 1977 to defeat the Briggs Initiatives, Propositions 6 and 7. The organization was among the many to rally against the anti-lesbian and gay bill, but it was among the few groups which actively campaigned against the anti-lesbian and pro-death penalty laws, continually pointing out the relationship between Third World oppression and the oppression of all lesbians.
