May Day Speak Out: Stand Up to Workplace Discrimination!

Celebrate International Workers Day at a Speak Out against discriminatory and dangerous working conditions. Join up with workers who are organizing against racism and sexism in hiring and on the job, unsafe worksites, and the abuse of at-will employees. Speak about your experiences and ideas on how to fight back against bigoted bosses and negligent management. Hostile and unsafe workplaces can affect everything from the ability to provide vital services to the quality of the water we drink. Meet and support San Francisco city workers, teachers, and other Bay Area public and private sector employees, who are fighting to improve their working conditions.

- Organize to end discrimination, unsafe working conditions and abuse of at-will employees!

- End racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia on the job!

- Stop privatization of public resources and jobs!
