Welcome!

The year 2013 marks the centennial of the Paterson Silk Strike, a major event in the history of New Jersey and the United States during the early 20th century. To commemorate this event a wide variety of civic, cultural, educational, historical, and labor organizations in the region will be offering a rich menu of programming throughout the year. These organizations have come together as the Paterson Silk Strike Centennial Alliance to raise public awareness about the historical significance and multiple legacies of the silk strike. We invite you to join us by subscribing to our news blog, checking out our calendar, participating in the events we have planned, and sharing this information with others. We look forward to seeing you in 2013.
