Join the Labor Committee for our monthly meeting tomorrow, April 12, at 6:30 pm. Solidarity is brewing! Starbucks workers around the country are organizing with Starbucks Workers United, and DSA members are here to support them. Join us to hear from Starbucks workers about the fight they’re facing and how both you and our chapter can help them win!

And don’t forget our upcoming Organizing Your Workplace training series! This four-part series will begin with an Organizing Your Workplace 101 event, which takes place next Thursday, April 21, at 6 pm. During the series, you’ll go from being a new workplace organizer to a powerful force for your coworkers, as we discuss how to connect with coworkers, determine demands and what to expect from bosses when they push back.
