WHERE:  Murrow Room, 13th Floor, National Press Club, 529 14th Street NW, Washington, DC

WHO:  Launched last fall, American Rights at Work is a nonprofit nonpartisan organization dedicated to educating the American public about the barriers that workers face when they attempt to exercise their rights to organize and engage in collective bargaining.
