Exhibited: "Bread and Roses Strike of 1912: Two Months in Lawrence, Massachusetts, that Changed Labor History" Digital Public Library of America online exhibition
Public officials required that children being sent away have the proper signed permission from their guardians. The strike committee created identification cards for that reason and every child leaving Lawrence wore one affixed to his or her collar. Even though there were over twenty languages spoken amongst the strikers, they brought a sophisticated level of organization to the strike. This unity and strength in organizing in the face of adversity allowed the strikers to ultimately win their demands.
