This Chicago convention held August 2006, resulted in important actions regarding organizing and politics, speakers such as New York Senator Hillary Clinton and Illinois Senator Barack Obama and a huge 'town hall' meeting to discuss the future of our union. An organizing video shown to all 6000 in attendance features a good clip starring four WV volunteer organizers pictured below. To read more about this convention, click here.
