This Sunday, September 17th, we will be tabling at the Westcott Street Cultural Fair. We will be sharing a booth with our friends at the Syracuse Peace Council. We will be selling WCCNY, Green Light, and immigrant rights buttons made by members of the Workers’ Center, Zapatista coffee, t-shirts, and much more. We also need volunteers to help with set-up and hellp staffing the table. Set up will start at 10am and the fair ends at 6pm, so the we need coverage the following shifts: 10am-12pm, 12pm-2pm, 2pm-4pm, 4pm-6pm. Please email Nikeeta at nslade@workerscentercnyorg if you’re able to take a shift (it would be ideal to have 2 people per shift)! The proceeds from the sale will go to supporting our amazing worker leaders! Thanks in advance and we are going to have a great time at the fair!
Another NY farmworker dies on the job; we must get serious about safety (Commentary)
Another tragedy at Marks Dairy Farm in Lowville, NY. We wrote this op-ed to review the history of labor abuse at this farm, and why maybe this fatality was preventable. Please share.
