Looking to join LAWCHA panel

Greetings,

If you already have a panel for LAWCHA 2021, but could use another paper, here are some things I could contribute. I am organizing another panel, so I will be there either way.

I study the Kansas City labor movement of the 1910s, which included a wartime general strike. Some themes are solidarity across gender/race, organizational networks, political cultures, cross-class collaborations, etc. Some key sectors were meatpacking, transit, and commercial laundries. I could also talk about teachers, or a prison reform movement.

Take care,
