Current Solidarity Calendar
The current political climate has many wondering where things went wrong, what was missed, what could have helped us avoid threats that currently face our community. These are important questions that we should be asking ourselves, our comrades, and our organizations so that we can grow, learn, and build a movement that can win equality and justice for all. Things may look bleak now, but remember that organizing, movement building, and ultimately victory is a long game. As the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. so appropriately said,
“The arc of the moral universe Is long, but it bends toward justice.”
Below is the Solidarity Calendar that was approved at last night’s JwJ Steering Committee meeting. We hope to see you at some of these important events!
15th Annual Faith Labor Breakfast – Showing Up for Each Other: Faith in Action
Please join us on Tuesday, February 21st, 7:15 am at St Andrew Catholic Church for the 15th Annual Jobs with Justice Faith Labor Breakfast. We continue to believe in the dignity of all workers and are proud of our community, which continues to speak on behalf of worker justice, standing with activists and community members in support of all Oregonians.
Our theme this year is “Showing Up for Each Other: Faith in Action.” In the wake of the 2016 election, many communities are justifiably concerned for their health and safety. This year’s theme highlights the stories of marginalized communities and the actions we can take together to create positive solutions to show up for each other and protect and strengthen our community!
Cost for the breakfast is $15, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Click here to register and purchase tickets online now.
Stand Up for Good Jobs with AT&T Workers!
AT&T Mobility made $13.3 billion in profits in 2016 and CEO Randall Stephenson took home nearly $17 million in 2015. But when it comes to the workers who made that success possible, the company continues to demand more work
for less pay.
AT&T Mobility has outsourced 60% of its retail stores to low-wage 3rd party dealers. Meanwhile, the company continues to close call centers and send jobs offshore to at least 8 countries and to lower wage areas of the US. Workers are joining together to help protect good jobs!
