Strike Meeting Held in New York City

Strike Meeting Held in New York City

Throughout the strike, sympathetic actions were held in cities and towns across the nation. This photo from the Library of Congress is of such a meeting in New York City. Unions, political parties, and sympathetic organizations would hold daily gatherings to keep each other updated on the events occurring in Lawrence. These assemblies often entailed the passing of resolutions, raising of funds to be sent to Lawrence strikers, and the organizing of acts of solidarity in their respective locales. The strike was particularly popular in New York City where marches, meetings, rallies, and fundraisers were held almost daily during the length of the strike.
