Back in 1987, Jobs With Justice was launched on the basic premise of solidarity: that we need to show up for each other’s fights as we fight our own struggles. Our early supporters signed the “I’ll Be There” pledge as a commitment to stand up for working people, coming together to improve their workplaces, their communities, and their lives.
This moment calls for me to recommit to the founding principle of Jobs With Justice. Will you join me?
|TAKE THE PLEDGE|
For us, “being there” means more than reading our emails or sharing one of our posts on Facebook. More than ever, we need everyone who shares our vision to stand up and fight with us–on the streets, on college campuses, at state capitols, and in the media.
Are you ready to unite with us to support working people and fight for an economy that works for all of us? Sign the pledge now.
We know what we’re up against with the next administration, an emboldened Congress and in states across the country: a rollback of a decade of progress for working families. An elimination of our rights to join unions and negotiate over our work. Unprecedented levels of hate crimes. Increased deportations of upstanding members of our communities. Cuts in social safety net programs. More handouts to greedy corporations.
From the beginning, Jobs With Justice has worked on building resistance on all these fronts and linking the struggles to unite a broad range of people and networks to fight and win. Throughout our history we have counted on friends like you to stand with working people and vulnerable communities.
I know I’ve said this before, but we can’t do this without you. Right now, we’re making plans for the next year, building off our recent wins at the state and local level, and fighting for our vision of a just and inclusive society. We are preparing to defend our hard-fought victories and stop a powerful few bending the rules for their own gain while hurting our communities. Can we count on you to stand with us and help us to continue to grow our movement?
Onwards and in solidarity!
