Rise in solidarity with women workers, join us! The event is free and open to the public. RSVP here: http://bit.ly/2lqmc5Q #WomenWorkersRising
On March 8th, International Women’s Day working women from multiple sectors will rally and surround the US Department of Labor In Washington D.C. in a show of unity, demanding that women workers be seen, heard, and treated with dignity, especially by the new Presidential Administration and Department of Labor leadership. They will be joined by allies in solidarity as they Dance, Rise, and Resist the bullying, attacks on workplace standards, and politics of exclusion practiced by the administration.
The event will feature live testimony and rallying cries from a diversity of voices, performances, videos, a flash mob, poetry, music, and much more. Through an artistic uprising, collective expression and creative resistance, women workers and artists will share personal powerful moving testimonies experienced on the job. We will come together to witness and listen to women workers who hold this country up but often remain invisible. The free event will take place from 3:30pm – 5:30pm and will honor the sacred and valuable work of women around the world, in all its forms, by demanding safe, violence-free workplaces.
