To recognize, commemorate, inform, and share the labor history and social justice legacy of Lawrence's 1912 Bread & Roses strike with Lawrence's present day residents and people worldwide. To facilitate and encourage visitors to continue to learn and create positive changes towards an integrated and sustainable society.

The Bread & Roses Heritage Committee (BRHC) is dedicated to the presentation of an annual free music and cultural festival. Through the collective actions of like-minded individuals throughout the Lawrence community, the committee was established in 1986 and has been active ever since. BRHC was established to keep alive and honor the memory of the great Lawrence textile workers' strike of 1912, popularly known as the "Bread and Roses Strike."

This annual festival is celebrated on Labor Day in order to honor the most significant event in Lawrence history: the 1912 Bread and Roses Strike.

We also host organizations continuing the struggle for social justice... read more...
