A highly active union advocate, Genora Dollinger was a charter member of the Flint Socialist Party and organized Flint Women’s Auxiliary #10 and the Women’s Emergency Brigade, which played a crucial role in the success of the Flint Sit-down Strike of 1937. Her husband, Sole Dollinger was an organizer for the Socialist Workers Party.

The papers of Genora and Sol Dollinger relate largely to Ms. Dollinger’s involvement in the Flint Sit-down Strike, and to a lesser extent, the Dollinger’s activities as members of the Socialist Workers Party and Ms. Dollinger’s involvement in women’s and civil rights advocacy.
