The Labor Trail is the product of a joint effort to showcase the many generations of dramatic struggles and working-class life in the Chicago area’s rich and turbulent past. The Trail’s neighborhood tours invite you to get acquainted with the events, places, and people — often unsung — who have made the city what it is today. In addition, the statewide map is just a starting point for further exploration of Illinois’ labor heritage. We invite you to report new themes for research and investigation on both the city and state level
