Anna Schlenz’s COVID-19 Organizing Fundraiser for Brandworkers

Back food factory workers organizing for survival and long term power

Specialty food manufacturing workers are risking their lives to keep food in supply during the coronavirus pandemic. Workers need your solidarity to protect themselves now and to build power that lasts long after the crisis.

I am raising $100 because the personal and community crises created under capitalism are being made readily visible by the current pandemic crisis. Reliable access to healthcare, income, food, and housing is precarious under capitalism, and these insecurities are drastically exacerbated in times of crisis like the one we’re in now.

But workers can defend and care for themselves and for their families if they are organized and ready! In an organized workplace, workers have the power to advocate for their needs and prepare for the unreliable future. Help me build that worker power with Brandworkers!

Your gift funds worker-led organizing for safety and income support during the coronavirus crisis. Together, we will protect food workers on the frontlines while building power that endures for years to come.

Our gifts will help Brandworkers gather funds from 500 community members by May 1st. Visit to see our progress and sign up to help.
