Hi everyone,

Workers and allies across the country are preparing to Strike for Black Lives on July 20th, with a national day of walkouts and worker actions to demand racial and economic justice, including in the workplace. This national day of action, one month ahead of the Democratic National Convention, will declare that Black Lives Matter and illustrate the ways our fights for racial, economic, healthcare, immigration, climate, and other justice fights are interconnected.

Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and Fight for $15 & a Union are bottom-lining these actions and 350.org has signed on as a partner. Both online and in-person events are being planned.

You can find more information here:

I know this Strike for Black Lives is coming up very quickly, so we are inviting your local 350 group to join and share actions in your area, or host an action if you feel called to and there isn’t one planned yet in your town.

Please reply to me (deborah@350.org) with questions about your local group’s engagement or reach out to J20help@seiu.org with general questions.

In solidarity,

Deborah Rosenstein,

US Trainings Senior Specialist

P.S. On Tuesday, July 14th, the Labor Network for Sustainability will co-host Pray for the Dead and Fight Like Hell for the Living. “In Memoriam,” a new video honoring essential workers who have lost their lives after exposure to COVID-19 will premiere as part of this program, as well as information about winning life-saving protections for workers.
