Mother Jones Alive

Mother Jones

Mother Jones

In 1902 she was “the most dangerous woman in America”.

Mary Harris Jones, commonly known as “Mother Jones”, was an Irish immigrant, a refugee of the “Great Famine”, a widow, a champion of the rights of children, and a tireless labor organizer in the coal fields of West Virginia and other places across the United States.

On Sunday, August 28, members of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Charleston, together with members of West Fork Unitarian Universalists, will bring Mother Jones to life, up close and personal, through her own words and the words of others from her times. Special music will be provided by members of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Morgantown.

Please join us at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 28, at the Progressive Women’s Association Event Center, 305 Washington Ave., in Downtown Clarksburg, WV, behind the Courthouse.

Children are welcome.

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.
