May Day March & Speak Out
May 1 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join up with workers who are organizing against racism and sexism in hiring and on the job, unsafe worksites, and the abuse of at-will employees. Meet and support San Francisco city workers, teachers, and other Bay Area public and private sector employees, who are fighting to improve their working conditions.
Protest the City’s anti-worker and pro-privatization agenda that is fueling the direct gentrification in our communities. Share your experience and ideas on how to fight back against bigoted bosses, impunity, harassment, and abusive negligent management. Stand up against hostile and unsafe workplaces which can affect everything from the ability to provide vital services to the quality of the water we drink.
