Black History Month Forum: City Workers Unite to Fight Racism on the Job
February 23, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC+0
San Francisco city workers are organizing against daily racist and sexist harassment on the job, dangerous working environments, and abusive conditions faced by long term at-will employees. This multi-racial panel features city employees who are building a movement to end these practices that endanger workers and the public alike.
In honor of Black History Month, come learn about their organizing efforts and why uniting workers of all colors to fight back together is the way to win changes for all.
