A festival about and for working people cannot exist alone. We need the help, guidance, advice, collaboration, and past experience of others in order to continue in what we do. Towards that end, individuals and organizations have offered their invaluable help and expertise in making sure CLiFF gets off to a great start. Most of them are listed here. Please let us know if we have made any omissions!
