In June 1979 longtime union singer, songwriter and educator Joe Glazer invited fourteen labor musicians to a three-day gathering at the George Meany Center for Labor Studies in Silver Spring, MD. Thus began the annual Great Labor Arts Exchange (GLAE), which continues to be the core engine of our activities.
Since then the GLAE has grown to include many different forms of labor art and culture. Incorporated in 1984, the Labor Heritage Foundation, here is a list member Labor Choruses.
On Monday, 16 April 2007, the DC Labor Chorus performed at the DC Emancipation Day Voting Rights March Assemblance rally which took place at Freedom Plaza.
