Join Brian O'Brien, Ireland's Consul General to Chicago and the Midwest; Mother Jones Heritage Project, Illinois State Historical Society, Illinois State AFL - CIO, United Mine Workers of America, Illinois Labor History Society, Mother Jones Foundation City of Mt. Olive, Union Miners Cemetery, Senator Dick Durbin, Route 66 association in dedicating this IDOT Coalfield Rest Stop Historical Marker and Indoor Exhibit.

Brian O'Brien will join in a wreath presentation at Mother Jones Monument at 12:00 on December 11. We welcome you there as well.

As we begin to celebrate Illinois' Bicentennial this month, let's keep in mind the way that workers transformed this state. This marker will profile immigrants role in shaping Illinois history. It will also highlight Mother Jones' role as a national figure. We also will unveil the indoor exhibit that highlight these themes.

As we begin to take down markers that stood for racial injustice, let's honor people (including women) who fought for social and economic justice.
