JULY 20TH is a day of reckoning. Across the country, workers will rise up to strike for Black lives. Together, we will withhold our most valuable asset — our labor — in support of dismantling racism and white supremacy to bring about fundamental changes in our society, economy and workplaces. Join us in walking out for justice.
--Justice for Black communities.
--Elected officials and candidates at every level use their authority to rewrite and reimagine the rules so that Black communities can thrive.
--Corporations take immediate action to dismantle racism, white supremacy and economic exploitation wherever it exists, including in our workplaces.
--Every worker has the opportunity to form a union, no matter where they work
