Add Your Name! Petition to Demand Safer Conditions for Amazon Workers
STL DSA has signed on to Athena Coalition’s petition demanding Amazon give workers better safety on the job. The petition, also sponsored by Jobs with Justice, Missouri Workers Center and United for Respect, came out last week right before the Rally on Amazon, where workers demanded accountability and more workplace protections from Amazon.
It’s time to demand more for our workers, including those working at the Edwardsville Amazon plant.

Transit Equity Day this Friday: Sign Up to Volunteer for Tabling and More
This Friday, February 4, is Transit Equity Day!
Join STL DSA’s Transit Caucus on Friday, and help us with tabling, as well as distributing hand warmers and bus rider surveys at local transit centers.
If you’re interested in helping this Friday, please let us know ASAP via the form here.
Even if you’re not able to help this week, we will have more volunteer opportunities available! Fill out the form here, and we’ll connect with you on how else you can help.
If there’s enough interest, we may continue transit-center canvassing through Valentine’s Day on Monday, February 14.
Please note, you do NOT need to be a current Transit Caucus member to volunteer. In fact, members with vehicles are especially encouraged to sign up to help, even if they can only help to provide rides or lunch to other members that are volunteering (as many Transit Caucus members do not own vehicles).
