Solidarity from Wisconsin to San Diego!
There has been an overwhelming response from supporters, like you, from across the country and right here in San Diego to the attacks on workers' rights in Wisconsin and other states. Thank you to those of you who attended one (or more) of our solidarity rallies and have helped in other ways. You can watch video of the rally here. And find out more ways to help here.
We need to maintain the momentum, stay engaged, and continue to take action.
There are many actions to support workers' rights and collective bargaining in the coming weeks. Please join us when you can and spread the word. We must continue to stand up for every worker's right to join together and collectively bargain for a better life.
Below is a schedule of upcoming actions and events:
