San Francisco city workers are organizing against daily racist and sexist harassment on the job, dangerous working environments, and abusive conditions faced by long term at-will employees. This multi-racial panel features city employees who are building a movement to end these practices that endanger workers and the public alike.

In honor of Black History Month, come learn about their organizing efforts and why uniting workers of all colors to fight back together is the way to win changes for all.

Speakers:

- Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 Chapter President, SF General Hospital and member of SF General Equity Council and Erase Racism.

- Lakisha Austin, co-founder of Strength in Numbers, decade-long employee of SF Public Utilities Commission and SEIU 1021 member. Strength in Numbers is a worker-led group of Water Department employees taking a stand against management abuse and bullying. SIN is committed to dealing with health, safety, racism, sexism, and contracting-out of public-sector jobs to private third-party employers with personal connections to SFWD bosses.

- Amy Gray-Schlink, Water Department plumber, member of Strength in Numbers and the Freedom Socialist Party.
