A hundred years ago, IWW members like Joe Hill understood they could insert messages into popular songs to inspire and educate. We’ll share examples of parodies we’ve sung with health care, railroad, and Walmart workers, highlight aspects of the song craft used to make them, and touch on the practicalities of using songs to support union organizing. If you’re looking for inspiration to create a new song for your campaign, this workshop is for you!
