On August 17-22, 2008, Highlander friends and supporters in California held a series of events to celebrate Highlander’s 75 years on the cutting edge of social justice organizing and to draw lessons from this experience to nurture and inspire current and future organizing efforts in their local areas.

Participants in the popular education workshop in San Francisco. Guests at the Los Angeles house party.

OAEC Executive Director Dave Henson with Highlander staff members Monica Hernandez, Pam McMichael, and Anasa Troutman. Elizabeth 'Betita' Martinez, author of '500 Years of Chicano History in Picture.'

Many thanks to all who helped organize and/or participated in these events.
