During the COVID-19 pandemic it has become even more clear that in times of crisis it is workers, and not the bosses or the investors, who are essential in our society. On International Workers Day we’ll highlight the heroic efforts of front line workers who are providing food, medicine and other essentials, caring for the hundreds of thousands of people who are struggling with COVID-19, and doing the other essential work that allows the rest of us to stay home to slow the spread of the virus.
On International Workers Day, we’ll bring the stories and visions of working-class people to the nation’s capital. We are inviting all types of working people - healthcare workers, warehouse workers, grocery store workers, solid waste workers, students (students are workers too!), people working in prisons, and laid-off and unemployed workers - to share their stories and visions for the future. We’ll take those stories straight to the politicians and bureaucrats who are controlling our government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis.
If you fill out this form we WILL wheat paste or project your message and story in the nation's capital on May Day.
We are committing to making sure that every story submitted gets displayed somewhere on the streets of DC - Whether it’s wheat pasted on a bus station or projected on the side of a building. Online, we’ll hold an essential workers’ town hall to lift up the stories of essential workers who are laboring through the COVID-19 pandemic.
