You can make a difference in the activities of the ILHS by volunteering your time and skills. As a small, nonprofit organization, we need volunteers for both particular events and occasional office work. If you can do any of the following, please contact us:
  • data entry
  • help with mailings
  • scanning photographs and documents
  • website projects
  • archive processing
  • staffing ILHS book/media tables at events

Contact us at 312-663-4107 or email us.


Memberships and donations keep ILHS going strong! Consider a donation today—we are a 501(c)3 organization, therefore your donation is tax-deductible.

Your donations are the primary source of our ability to continue to provide educational programming & curricula, maintenance of the Haymarket Martyrs Monument, and giving tours.  These are just a few of the things we do with your generosity.  Almost no one else does what we do to keep labor history alive.

ILHS has been remembered generously in the wills of many dedicated labor folks. Consider making ILHS a beneficiary so that your good name and works will live on.

Join the ILHS.

Your membership is one of the best ways to support ILHS's efforts to keep labor history alive for workers, students, and the public. By remembering our past, we are building our future!

As a membership organization we truly rely on those who support our mission to join the ILHS.  As we grow, so too will our outreach to union members, the general public, and other institutions.  Events such as the Haymarket Tragedy, the Pullman Strike, and the Cherry Mine Disaster are generally not told in books, television, or other media.  This forgotten history teaches us much about how to build a movement of social and economic justice.  Your membership is essential to keeping labor history alive.

Members receive the ILHS newsletter and invitations to all events.

"And I long to see the day when Labor will have the destiny of the nation in her own hands and she will stand as a united force and show the world what the workers can do." --- Mary Harris "Mother" Jones, 1830-1930
